Consider this - by this time next Saturday night you could have a new painting skill, a meditative practice, and a unique piece of art to hang on your wall! Join the beautiful Natalia Londono Art on Saturday, October 16th from 6-9pm for our Art on the Rocks class. We'll create a MANDALA on a 9x12 canvas! https://www.beachartcenter.org/artontherocks

Mandalas hold symbolic and meditative meaning beyond their vibrant appearance. Students will learn how to begin creating and expanding the mandala using mandala tools and a dot technique.

Sign up with some friends or meet new people. This is a perfect class for any skill level - no experience is necessary. Bring some snacks and drinks and let's create and learn together.

I painted this waterscape as a tutorial to share in a workshop. However, it came out richer and deeper than I intended. I think I will develop this as a larger painting as a result.
I will try again to make a simpler tutorial of the same subject. I will design a different approach to unify the washes to make the painting readily accomplished.
