About This Class

The word mandala comes from a Sanskrit word that generally means “circle”. Mandalas are primarily drawn with concentric circles and include repeating patterns but the concept is definitely open to interpretation! According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a mandala is defined as “a graphic and often symbolic pattern usually in the form of a circle divided into four separate sections”.

This fun class will teach you three easy ways to get started creating hand drawn mandalas using simple repetitive techniques and easy to find supplies. Once you know how to start your mandalas, the next step is to take one mark or pattern at a time and build on it. Finished mandalas can look super complex but by taking it one step at a time, you too can draw a beautiful work of art while bringing a sense of peace to the process and to yourself.

To me, the repetition of the design within a mandala is a form of meditation that quiets my mind and takes me outside the stress of everyday living. I try to allow the marks to just happen and not be too planned and work at being ok with the design not being “perfect”. That is my goal for you in this class!
