Meditative Dot Painting Workshop (ages 11+)

(Ages 11+)

Inspired by traditional Aboriginal Australian Dot Painting techniques, students will learn how to mix paint to the proper consistency to be used with a dipped dowel of various sizes to create an intricately patterned tile. This is a great technique for those interested in pattern, rhythm and colour mixing. The state of being is altered through music and the simple action of painting dots to become a meditative state.
