Taking art off the page, into your hands

Library offers 'Let's Create' programs


Let’s Create: Mandalas

On Sunday, Oct. 28 at 2 p.m., learn about mandala. From Sanskrit meaning circle or whole, it describes a circular design found not only in nature but also in Buddhist, Christian, and Native American sacred art traditions. In psychology, mandala is seen as a metaphor for the self.

“In this fun and relaxing workshop we will work with colors, shapes, and patterns to create our own mandalas using pen, pastel, colored pencil, and collage. The process of making mandalas allows us to listen to our inner spirit and to be present in the moment,” according to the library. This session is presented by Karen Beaver.
