Register today for a retreat style mandala art class with artist Vidya Shyamsundar!
Join us on Friday, March 24, 2023, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Chester County Art Association to experience the art of painting mandalas.
A mandala is a geometric meditative art that embodies beauty, harmony, and wellness. The repertoire of symmetrical motifs in mandalas indicates that life is a continuum.
In this three-hour retreat, you will create a beautiful 6"x 6" acrylic painting of a mandala and enjoy the experience of painting your unique piece while you sip Indian Chai and immerse yourself in meditative music. The retreat begins with sharing gratitude, followed by a Sanskrit Prayer, a short presentation about mandala art, and storytelling.
Feel the inner tranquility that helps you stay focused and regain your sense of calm and purpose. Treat yourself with the gift of self-care because you deserve it!
Price: $100/ person. All Supplies & Materials Included. No Art Background Required.
