This workshop follows on from September’s ‘Pentagonal Mandala Painting course.
It is open to those who attended that course or a previous workshop with Anne,
or who have experience of drawing geometry. Contact Anne to discuss.
‘Mandala’ is a Sanskrit word meaning circle or wholeness. A mandala is a circular design that expresses wholeness
through harmoniously bringing together colours, patterns and forms. Mandalas are found in many cultures, throughout
history, in both religious and secular settings.
The mandala can be a focus for meditation, both during its creation and subsequently, as an object of contemplation.
It can be perfectly simple, or elaborately complex in colour and construction, incorporating symbols and sacred geometry.
Whether simple or complex, the creation of a mandala can be a deeply satisfying process, providing a way to work
artistically that can help us feel more centred and connected within ourselves and the world around us.
‘Come Forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher’ – Wordsworth
Spirals are found everywhere in nature; from snail shells, plant growth and whirlpools to hurricanes, the orbit of planets
and unfolding spiral galaxies.
This course will explore:
- Different types of spiral and the symbolism of spirals
- How to draw a Golden Spiral from a five pointed star
- Weaving the wonder of nature, into your own spiral mandala design
We’ll be working in pencil, pastel and watercolour
Anne is a freelance artist and teacher based in Wales, UK. She has quietly painted mandalas for most of her adult life.
Cost: £35 (or £60 for both this course and ‘Pentagonal Mandala painting’)
