Mandalas call to your soul. You feel them pull on the weave of the fabric of your Being, and more often than not, you don’t know why.
This is because the mandala is an archetypal form which resides in the collective unconscious. It is both a representation of the cosmos and an expression of it, brought to life by Life itself.

Mandala is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning sacred circle. Mandalas have been found in art since the beginning of time.
In this class we will explore Mandala as a way of connecting to your creative spirit. In this 3 hour class you will be introduced to the idea of personal Mandala making. We will work to create two basic Mandalas using acrylics colours on cartridge sheets—one style will be geometric in monochromatic scheme and one style will be dotted in colourful scheme.

A beautiful and fulfilling opportunity to express your creativity with this ancient craft! By creating your own personal mandalas you will begin to tap into the power of the mandala as a personal tool of healing and insight into your own life.

Venue of the event – The Cuckoo Club 5AA, Mc Ronnel’s Compound, Pali Hill Road, Next to Learner’s Academy, Bandra West, Mumbai, India 400050

We bring you professional tips on how to capture great images using the right technique, while achieving a myriad of effects and results on a phone camera!

With the guarantee of quality that comes with a professional camera gone, the nature of your gaze truly makes or breaks a Smartphone picture, and we show you how you can get it right!
