Embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery through the captivating art of mandalas with acclaimed artist Jill Althouse-Wood. Mandalas, circular arrangements of symbols, have been revered across spiritual traditions for their ability to focus the mind and facilitate meditation. Jill, known for her evocative forest scenes, introduces her spiritual practice of creating painted mandalas using the metaphorical language of tree rings.
Practitioners prepare by going inward and reflecting on personal growth and intuitive symbols as Jill guides us with meditation and creative journaling exercises. The second half of the workshop will be dedicated to creating a painted, drawn, and/or collaged tree-ring mandala. While this workshop is more about process than product, each person will leave with a final piece of artwork on 10 x10 inch stretched canvas. This workshop will occur over midday. We will be taking a short break; though not necessarily a full-stop for lunch. Please bring along protein-rich snacks/drinks.
For the protection of everyone attending the class, if you have any symptoms of cold, flu, or any other virus, we ask that you not attend. Class size will be limited.
