Malmö – Thangka classes 3-6 May 2018

Drawing the Buddha!

We are very excited to announce the first thangka courses with Carmen Mensink in Malmö, Sweden!
The next series of lectures and Buddhist Art classes are all suitable for everyone, also people with no drawing experience:


Thu 3 May – Evening lecture:

Tibetan Art & the Buddha

Date & Time: thursday  3 may 19.00 – 20.30
Price: 100 kr. / €10 (or free if you sign up for or for the Fri evening course and subsequent weekend course, price: 1500 kr. / €150)


Fri 4 May – evening workshop:

Drawing the Face of the Buddha

During this evening workshop you will learn how to draw the Face of the Buddha according to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. 

We will start with a short meditation and a short lecture to learn more about the backgrounds and symbolism of Tibetan thangkas, this is the best introduction if you want to learn how to draw a complete Buddha (Buddha Shakyamuni) in this weekend. If you register for the complete weekend course you will get a discount.

To draw the Buddha Face we will work with the original grid-patterns (that contain the right proportions), which serve as a helpful tool to draw the Buddha (also for people with not much drawing experience).

During the drawing session there is a lot of individual guidance by Carmen.
At the end of the evening you will return home with a beautiful, self drawn Buddha.

Drawing experience is not necessary, enthusiasm is though!

Date & Time: friday evening 4 May 18.00 – 21.00
Price: 450 kr. / €45 (or 1500 kr. / €150 for all 4 days, including Thu evening lecture, Fri evening course and subsequent weekend course)


Sat 6 + Sun 7 May – Thangka Weekend Course:

Drawing the Buddha!

This weekend you will learn to draw The Buddha according to the old Tibetan Thangka tradition.
The official name of the Buddha is ‘Buddha Shakyamuni’, and the Buddhist philosophy as we know it in its current form is based on his teachings.

Besides the drawing sessions this course offers meditations and lectures about the subject, where you will learn everything about the background and symbolism of the iconography. You will also learn Buddha Shakyamuni’s mantra and its meaning.

Sunday 6 May: 10.30-16.00 (with 1hr lunch break)
