Mandalas literally mean a circle and have existed in traditional art for almost 12,000 years, Sri Yantra being one of the earliest examples. It represents the universe and the inner self and its self symmetric designs are pleasing to the eyes. They are known to reduce stress, anxiety, depression and help one calm down. Artist Sujata Tibrewala takes them to another level and uses modern symbols and watercolor techniques to represent the modern world we live in today.
In this series of 4 classes, you will learn to dig into symbols that are meaningful to you and paint them within the forgiving symmetrical patterns of Mandala while you simultaneously learn skills such as visual and color Perspective, color theory, patterns in nature, and modern watercolor techniques.
