Take Part in the Chalk Mandalas Community Art Project

April 5, 2017 3:38 pm

On Saturday, April 8, join Glass Wheel Studio to help create floral mandalas inspired by the featured exhibition 'Organica' by Martie Negri & The Layered Up Invitational. Participants will use sidewalk chalk to fill in life-size mandala designs on the courtyard sidewalk. Drinks and supplies will be provided by the studio, and it's sure to be a fun day for all!

Glass Wheel Studio describes a bit about the history behind sand mandals:

Sand mandalas are an ancient Tibetan tradition practiced by monks involving intricate patterns made with brightly colored sand. Historically, semi-precious stones were crushed into a fine powder and applied to a chalk outline with a thin metal tool called a Chak-pur. Layer upon layer of the brightly colored sand is poured into circular patterns which may represent unity, wholeness or the cycle of life. Several monks work together to complete one mandala and the process can take days to complete.

This event is free and open to all ages, so don't miss out!
