A circle is a powerful symbol of feminine energy, mother earth. Have you thought about what it means to you? Mandala work is associated with meditation, reflection and creation to be present and hopefully create a state of peace or clarity. We will be using rocks from the earth, nails as paint “brushes” and acrylic paint to create our unique mandalas.
Special Guest: During the June Art Social event, Sue met a local talent that used this special and accessible technique and was mesmerized. Using nails to create dewy perfect circles of paint of smooth rocks, Payson showcased her eye for color. The intention was to share them as found objects around Frederick but Payson couldn’t let them go. We will create these little, beautiful, dense tokens and do whatever we like; share them with the world or keep them for ourselves.
Thank you for inspiring this class, for your talent and assisting with the class, Payson! We are so excited to have you.
In this workshop we will;
Use rocks, acrylic paint and nails as “brushes”
Find a meditative rhythm
Play with color and patterns
Be open to setting intentions to share or keep private
Supplies included/what you will take home;
All materials provided
You will take home 3 rocks that are prepped with a circle of black paint (helps the colors pop)
It’s an hour and a half class so it will depend on your pace - take home materials to finish them, if needed.
A bag to hold your rocks, if needed.
Option to bring your own found rocks (find rocks that speak to you - smooth is easier to work with) the black circle will take time to dry so may limit your painting time.
