Mindfulness Mandala Art Classes at Studio 550

I am so thrilled to announce that I have found a spot right here in my home city of Manchester, NH to offer mandala art classes on a regular basis. Studio 550 Art Center is conveniently located in downtown Manchester, NH on Elm Street.

Mindfulness Mandala Art Classes are offered monthly on a Tuesday night and runs 2 to 3 hours depending on the lesson.

Each workshop features

  • a mandala art lesson
  • guided meditation to gently awaken your creativity
  • demonstrations and easy to follow step-by-step instructions
  • a theme to create mandala art for self expression and insight

If it’s your first workshop, you’ll get the Introduction to Creating Mandala Art lesson. If you’ve taken a class before, you’ll get to pick from a selection of projects.

What’s a mandala?

Mandala with it’s roots in the Hindu and Buddhist cultures is a Sanskrit word that loosely translates to mean circle or center. Typically the shapes and colors are arranged in a symmetrical pattern “radiating” from the center point. The circle has captured the fascination of artists across all cultures. We see examples of circular art forms in cathedral stained glass windows, Celtic spirals, Navajo sand paintings, and the Chinese Yin Yang.

In contemporary mandala art, any design within a circle is considered a mandala. Often contemporary mandalas are created for self expression, insight, and healing.

The Mindfulness Mandala Art Classes at Studio 550 Art Center explore a wide range of artistic styles, cultural motifs, and contemplative themes.

Each participant begins with the same starting point and ends with a unique work of art
