Saturday Sketch Club – Mandala

In this month’s Saturday Sketch Club, participants will learn about the divine significance of a Mandala, how to create one, and how it can help you to reach a meditative state. Teaching artist Adriana Martinez will be demoing how to start a Mandala and will create a few using different mediums. This program is hosted on IG Live @muzeo.

What you’ll need:

All you really need to get started drawing Mandalas are paper and something to draw with. Here are some materials you might grab if you have them handy:

  • Paper
  • Colored pencils
  • Colored markers
  • Crayons
  • Black pen or sharpie
  • Paint (watercolors, gouache, acrylic, you name it – they all work)
  • Paintbrush (size 8 or smaller)
  • Heavy paper if you’re using paints (we recommend watercolor paper or mixed media paper)
