Art Nights | Online | Drawing Animal-Dala


When we create a mandala, it’s the inner expression of oneself. There are many healing benefits with drawing and painting mandalas, and the process of creating freely is a very meditative experience. These beautiful designs spark creativity, reduce stress and anxiety, activate both analytical and creative parts of the brain, enhance problem-solving and are a relaxing form of meditation.

In this workshop, we will learn about mandalas, practise repeat patterns, and play with colour. Your tutor, Serena, will also teach you how to break down your animal guide (or spirit!) into easy step-by-step stages.

Using loose linework and removing expectations, will enable your personalised mandala to flow. Grab your herbal tea, light a candle and be swept up in the musical sounds of this experiential class.
