In art, a Mandala refers to symbols and patterns that are drawn, sketched or painted in a circular frame. In this workshop, art instructor Eileen Healey will guide you as you create your own Mandala drawing. Each artist will explore the process of drawing in a symmetrical circular format using a variety of tools and templates. Mandala creation can be meditative and unpredictable. Not even the artist knows what will happen as the Mandala drawing is gradually built by a series of creative choices. Ages 14 and older. Cost: $15.
