SINGAPORE – Thangka Weekend Course, Jan. 5-7, 2018

Offering Goddesses

In this weekend course you will learn how to drawOffering Goddesses according to the Tibetan tradition, and learn all about the offerings they are connected to.

Offering Goddesses
Strongly connected to the offerings are the Offering Goddesses, or Dakinis, beautiful female deities playing an instrument, or holding flowers or perfume for example.

Drawing these enlightened images is a meditation in itself and creates inner peace and joy.

This weekend is suitable for beginners and advanced. It is not necessary to have drawing experience.
Beginners will first draw a Buddha Face before moving on to the subject.

Carmen Mensink will guide students through the cultural/historical context of thangkas and symbolism within Tibetan-Buddhist art through the combination of art, slide shows and meditations. She also offers a lot of individual guidance this weekend.
