Mandala designs and colouring books have become immensely popular in the west as aids for meditative and creative practice. Ubie’s courses benefit from her experience as an art teacher and qualified graphic designer to teach the artistic skills to elevate your work beyond simple colouring in!
Our Mandala courses are for smaller groups with no more than 12 participants so there will be plenty of time to give you one to one tuition and for you to share ideas with other attendees. Previous participants have found the work very relaxing and mindful and have been delighted at the high quality work they have been able to produce in a short period of time!
What you learn
In the drawing part of the class, Ubie will demonstrate the techniques to draw your own beautiful Mandala creation on 25cm x 25cm canvas. We will provide examples of different styles to assist you to draw a design that appeals to your eye. If you attend a drawing only class your black and white creation will be suitable for display or you may choose to colour it.
In the watercolour pencil painting session of the class, Ubie will explain ‘Colour Wheel’ theory with you and help you to mix, match and blend warm and cold colours to colour a gorgeous design. We use good quality watercolour pencils and a water brush along with high quality watercolour art paper in the classes and will explain the techniques to blend and wash colours to create different effects.
What you make
- For those attending the Full Class you will work on a 25cm x 25cm canvas. You will draw your own creation in the first half the course and watercolour paint it in the second half.
- If you attend the drawing only class, you will draw your design on a 25cm x 25cm canvas and complete a black and white piece of work that you may then choose to colour.
- If you attend the Watercolour painting class only, we will provide top quality watercolour paper pre-printed with one of Ubie’s Mandala designs. You will paint this and be left with a beautiful piece of work that will be suitable for framing.
