Art Therapy: Mandala Art
Time & Location
About the Event
In art therapy a mandala is like a window to the self and to the soul. Insightful... soothing...satisfying...
Warm up artwork- Draw around your body with oil pastels on giant paper creating soothing rythmic circular patterns. Warm ups help overcome worry about a blank page. They are purely about the process of making marks, moving the body & getting creativity sparking. But they can also fruit some suprising and pleasing results. (Big art is my favourite!)
Mindfullness exorcise- Close your eyes and I will guide you through a relaxing process of honouring the different parts of yourself; mind, body, heartspace and soul. There may be images, symbols or a felt sense present that can be drawn & expressed into the artwork that follows.
Artwork- Create a mandala using oil pastels & water colours. Water colour has flowing qualities and marrying with buttery pastels can bring the element of suprise. This artistic effect is a playful way you can let go of expectations & immerse in fluid colours & forgiving lines. You will take home a meaningful water colour peice that may continue to reveal itself to you as time goes by!
Reflection- I will offer up some reflection questions around the mandala artworks. Discuss and share your outcomes over some tea or journal your thoughts... completely optional.
Adult group for people who feel overwhelmed, stressed or anxious.
Mandala work can help with reconnecting with a sense of self, helpful for those who use a lot of energy caring for others.
