NYC – Evening workshop


Drawing the Face of the Buddha

buddha-face-workshop-carmen-mensink

During this new evening workshop at Pratt Institute 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 Tibetan thangka, such as the Mandala of the 5 Senses, the subject of the weekend course.

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.

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.
