In this workshop we will explore the simple contemplative steps for growing a mandala. No prior drawing experience is necessary. Because this workshop will be via Zoom, you will need to collect your own supplies. A list is provided below.

Art supply options to purchase:

  • Drawing pad: 11″ X 14″ (best) or 9″ X 12″ (Mix-media preferred)
  • Pigma Micron artist ink pen or similar product or black ink pen (non-smudging) or fine-point Sharpie
  • Koh-I-Noor Woodless Colour Pencils (12-24 pack from Hobby-Lobby, Michaels or Blick)
  • Prismacolor Colorless Blender Pen

On-hand supply options:

  • White paper: 10″ X 10″ drawing paper is best but an 8.5″ X 11″ is okay for initial learning
  • Black ink pen (non-smudging) or fine point Sharpie markers (or other non-smudging markers)
  • other Non-blending coloring options: crayons or colored pencils
