NEW BRITAIN MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART

Youth Drawing 101

Meditative Mandalas

Wednesday, October 26, 2016

One of our many educational programs at the NBMAA

Many artists consider art-making to be therapeutic and meditative. Even more-so, some such as Sanford Biggers incorporate meditative subject matter into their work. During this month’s Youth Drawing, students will discover the meaning and influence of mandalas in Biggers’s work and their importance to Buddhist and Hindu culture. Then, using pen and ink, students will create their own mandalas utilizing elements of repetition, patterns, and line value.
