NYC – Evening workshop

Drawing the Face of the Buddha


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.
