Mandala Dot Painting


with Joyce Amend, York Adult Education

Calendar Next session starts May 10, 2021 at 6 pm, runs for 3 weeks

Find a sense of calmness as you create a unique work of art in a dot mandala. Using special tools and acrylic paints, mandalas are created by painting dots with a precise technique to form beautiful patterns. No artistic experience required. It’s fun and easy. Joyce will show you how it’s done! All materials needed to complete the projects will be provided. The defining criterion for a dot painting is the technique used - that it is produced by repeated imprints of a paint covered dotting stick or other implement onto the surface of the painting. In doing so, recognizable ‘dot’ marks create desired patterns. The first class will focus on using the tools to create dot mandalas and will result in dotting a beautiful mandala on a rock that may be used for ornamentation or as a paperweight. Class 2 will introduce the use of templates in creating mandalas and will result in painting a beautiful mandala on a small artist’s canvas. Class 3 will be a unique and special project that will culminate with the use many of the dotting skills learned in the previous classes.

Mondays, 6 - 7:30 PM, May 10 - May 24, $69
