Mandalas, meaning circles in Sanskrit, are sacred symbols that are used for meditation, prayer, healing, and art therapy for both adults and children. Mandalas, have been shown in clinical studies to boost the immune system, reduce stress and pain, lower blood pressure, promote sleep, and ease depression. Mandalas open the door into the symbolic language of our inner spirit and wisdom! In this course, you will learn basic steps to draw the Mandala, such as: sketching the outlines, painting with acrylic paints using dotting technique, adding extra dots for decoration and finishing touches. You will create your own dot mandala on a circular wooden box. This art process is very inspiring and meditative! It also helps to release stress and can be used as art therapy.
