Mandalas in Mixed Media – Explorations with Pen, Ink & Watercolour

Some materials included

Artist Instructor:  Linda Hook


Mandalas have a rich artistic history that transcends time and culture.  Designing mandalas is a great way to create original art while incorporate a little part of yourself into every piece.  Join artist Linda Hook for a 4 week course exploring the Mandala as an artform and the creative process as an integral part of your self-care regime.

We’ll begin with some Pen & Ink  basics and then explore mark making and visual shorthand in greater detail.  We’ll create interest with watercolours and acrylic inks as we explore and exploit their properties.  Each week you will make your original designs more intricate by learning how to build tones and add colour and texture to your work.  We will experiment with a variety of Mandala design templates and incorporate elements from different cultures into our designs.   Throughout the course, the addition of some simple breathing exercises, gentle stretches and mindfulness practices will transform our creative experience into a weekly mini-retreat!
