About This Class


Creating art is no longer restricted to those that possess the 'talent'! With a detailed and logical approach, free template files and resources this course will help you to create your own unique Mandala inspired images in minutes.

Mandalas have their origins many centuries ago, where they were used as a way to focus ones attention into a single activity and offer a calming and relaxing way to express themselves using simple drawing tools.

Comprised of a central emblem or motive, surrounded by rings of concentric and repeating patterns Mandalas can be elegantly simple or intricately complex. This course is your complete guide to creating these beautiful works of art.

By following the step by step process outlined in this course, you too will be creating your own patterns. You will start out by creating a simple four-ring design. Followed by learning how to utilize the free patterns, all designed to inspire and simplify your creative journey. Finally, you will see how to apply 'themes' to your designs. How to get inspiration from some unlikely sources. And how to add color and life to your artworks.

So, come join me in learning this fun and rewarding past-time. I can guarantee that once you complete this course and begin creating your own Mandalas, you will find it both relaxing and extremely rewarding. 

Best of all, all you need to follow along is a pencil, some paper, a pen and optionally some coloured pencils.

Things you will learn in this class:

  • Master the process of creating mandala designs
  • Learn how to incorporate your own shapes, patterns and elements

  • Learn how to make designs that flow
  • Add color to your artwork

This class was an eye-opener for me. I have been meaning to get a pen and start drawing on my ipad for ages. This has convinced me to get online and order. Robert explains clearly and slowly each step. He also provides interesting tips along the way to help you think through your design. A very interesting class. Thank you!
