LUCKY Mandala Painting - Th3/22 

Get into a calm meditative place through mandala painting. Leave this three hour class with a completed dot mandala painting and perhaps some mandala rocks. Your LUCKY MANDALA will be created on a 12x12 black canvas. No Groupons or other prepaid vouchers. Johnna Morrow, instructor.

CLASS FEE: $39 / $33 Studio Members + $10 supply fee paid to instructor at class

Mandala designs are usually circular in nature symbolizing the universe. They are frequently used in meditation to enhance the experience or can simply be a visual reminder of the beauty in our lives.

Johnna will walk you through how to paint a dot mandala on an 8"x8" pre-primed black canvas. You will learn about canvas preparation, paints, the basic geometry, tools and techniques and the how-to of dot mandala construction.

The class project is the mandala pictured. We will be using pre-mixed craft paints applied with circular tools rather than brushes. Next, we'll add sparkle with some colorful adhesive gems. While your painting dries, you can paint a rock in your own design for a small additional fee. 

Materials and supplies provided: 1 - 12"x12" pre-primed black canvas, acrylic paints and pallet, dot tools, brush, paper towel and water. Johnna will have rocks available or you may bring your own. Your rocks should have these qualities to work well for this project: round, flattened, smooth and non-porous (think basalt not sandstone).
