Thangka course in Venicce
Thu 10 to Sun 13 Oct 2019
> Subject will be announced soon
In this extended weekend course, held at a typical Venetian Palace on a canal in Venice’s historical center, you will learn how to draw a Buddha according to the tradition of Tibetan Buddhist thangkas (Tibetan scroll paintings).
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.
There will also be a detailed explanation of the Green Tara Mantra.
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 beginners and advanced. It is not necessary to have drawing experience.
Beginners will first draw a Buddha Face before moving onto the complete Buddha.
