The Magic of Mandalas

  • Cherry Blossom Cretive 2128 8th Street Northwest Washington, DC 20001 USA (map)

Invest a moment in time and allow your mind the freedom to express, with no judgment in a safe supportive environment. In this two hour workshop, come learn the healing art of Mandalas by creating your very own. If you can draw a circle, square, and triangle you are on the path to creating your own spiritual masterpiece!

Join artist, Monica Vercillo, at Cherry Blossom Creative, as she leads guests in the mindful practice of self-expression through the art of mandalas. She will take you step-by-step, creating beautiful mandala symbolism. She talks about shape and color psychology, using positive affirmations that reflect the meaning of the shapes used in the drawing. She also offers suggestions on how to balance repetitive shapes and patterns. You'll also learn about how to select the best colors.

Mandala is the Sanskrit word for sacred circle and are characterized by repetitive patterns in concentric shapes, (circles, triangles, squares, etc). In many spiritual practices, a mandala represents the entire Universe. In more modern Jungian psychology, the symbol stands for an effort to reunify the self. We will be using the art of mandalas to unwind and release stress.

No art making experience is necessary; here, the final artwork is not as important as the art making process creating it.

The workshop includes all the materials you need to make a mandala masterpiece, including a 4x4 canvas, puffy paint and light refreshments.
