About This Class

7fee05f1

This is the second class in my Hand Drawn Mandala series.  In this class I will take you further into the process and introduce you to using circular grids.  We will learn how to make three different grids and then use these grids to create frameworks, add detail and ink our mandalas.  Similar design elements will be used throughout all three mandalas so the student can see how changing up the grid and framework can give you a completely different look.

What you require:

  • pencil
  • paper
  • pen
  • compass
  • protractor
  • eraser
  • ruler
  • no drawing experience necessary - just the desire to explore and learn

What you will learn

  • How to draw three different versions of a circular grid and the skills to invent your own
  • How to create a framework using a preset grid
  • How using the same design elements and simple shapes can give different looks depending on what grid you start with.

What you will walk away with

  • The skills to make your own grids
  • three grids available for you to download, print out and use over and over again
  • The encouragement to tackle your own creative designs
  • a community of fellow mandala lovers like you learning to create beautiful designs, share their stories and encourage each other on.

Looking forward to seeing you in class!
