buddha-face-workshop-carmen-mensink

A beautiful evening with renowned thangka painter Carmen Mensink from The Netherlands, where after her lecture on the art of thangka you’ll get to experience it hands-on by learning how to draw the Face of the Buddha according to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. 

This evening offers a great introduction on Tibetan thangka painting (Buddhist scroll paintings): through the lecture you’ll learn about the tradition of thangka art, how it came into existence, and the special place it holds within the Tibetan buddhist philosophy.

Drawing the Face of the Buddha the way it has been done for centuries is a meditative experience. If you’re a buddhist practitioner, drawing a Buddha is also a great help for your visualization meditation. The symbolism found within the Buddha Face will also be explained.

This evening is suitable for everyone, including beginners with no drawing experience whatsoever; Carmen will guide you individually.

The use of materials is included!

This Drawing the Face of the Buddha workshop is the prerequisite for follow-up courses where you can learn to draw a complete Buddha, such as Guan Yin, Female Buddha of Compassion / Jun 22+23, 2024 / Tibet House NYC
