Mandala of Compassion
With internationally renowned artist, Andy Weber
The practice of painting sacred art is a powerful journey of self-discovery and healing. These artworks are used in traditional meditations, yet the experience of the artist is also incredibly profound. You are literally manifesting this form of divinity in physical form and earning tremendous spiritual merit.
Master thangka painter Andy Weber will lead students through a detailed meditation of the Mandala Of Compassion, including a visualization and chanting of the mantra.
These practices increase the healing power of the meditative practice of painting. He will then introduce students both to the traditional methods and modern techniques for creating these beautiful artworks.
No artistic talent, training, or experience is needed! Beginners will start with a simple drawing of the Buddha’s head. Experienced artists will work on a formal drawing of the full mandala, based on the ancient and mystical proportions. Full technical guidance will be given to begin painting using the traditional colour pallet. A list of tools materials needed will be provided upon registration.
Date: Saturday 12th – Monday 14th October
Time: 10am – 4pm
Cost: $220 / $200 (VI Members)
