Thangka Drawing Course
in the most beautiful city in the world
Thu 11 to Sun 15 Nov 2020
> Subject will be announced
Included in this course are meditations, slideshows & talks on the symbolism of this deity, and a lot of individual guidance.
You will also learn the meaning of the mantra and how to work with it.
The course is suitable for everyone, including beginners with no drawing experience whatsoever.
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.
Drawing a Buddha is a meditation in itself and creates inner peace and joy. When you’re a Buddhist practitioner, the drawing of the Buddha can improve your visualization meditation on a great scale. Buddhist lamas say: “When you draw a Buddha, you are drawing your own mind.”
The course will be given in English -with an Italian translation- and is suitable for both complete beginners and advanced thangka students. Beginner students will first draw a Buddha Face before moving onto the complete Buddha.
If you want to turn your thangka drawing of Chenrezig into a painted thangka you are welcome to do so in one of the longer art courses, such as the Thangka Retreat Italy from 12-21 June 2020, where you will learn the traditional thangka painting techniques, and Carmen will guide you through the thangka painting process.
