Mosaics from the Mind’s Eye: Mandalas
Weekends July 11/12 and 18/19 – 2009
at 2nd City Council Art Gallery + Performance Space
Long Beach, CA
Tap into pattern, symbolism, and insight as you explore the Mandala and discover your inner essence. The mandala form is an ancient art described as a cosmic map or diagram. Mandalas can be found in nearly every culture around the world and are used for teaching, healing, meditation, and reflection.
“This class gives you the opportunity to explore your creativity, as well as giving technical expertise on mosaic art. Lillian is a caring, generous teacher. You will be so proud of the work you have accomplished in this class! “
– Nadia K, Oakland, CA
A VISUAL INTRODUCTION of mandalas will kick off the class and each participant will complete a 12” diameter mixed-media mosaic mandala for indoor use. Many patterns will be available to help inspire the design process.
We design and set for three sessions, and grout on final day. You will leave with a finished mandala.
You are encouraged to bring your own materials to give personal meaning to your piece.
