White Tara Thangka Art Course Edition Sept/Oct 2020

Welcome to the White Tara Inspiration Gallery! Here displayed are the artworks that were created during the online White Tara Thangka Art Course Edition Sept/Oct, 2020 at the School for Tibetan Buddhist Art (check out the next edition!)
These female Buddhas of Longevity are made by people from all over the world, and both with and without any drawing experience. Not only express these images the enlightened Buddha mind, they also convey the beauty, love and dedication of the maker. 🙏🏼
Isn’t each and every one of them amazing?

Carmen encourages us to take our time and refine our skills

Hi Carmen 🌷
I will have to retake the course of the Coloring Techniques.
I only went through almost every module but didn’t really practice. I love it thought very much! So well explained …
Next time I will probabile focus only on that …
I will take with me what I have learned and keep on practicing.
I feel truly delighted by the experience of the White Tara drawing.
I am sending you where I am at so far. I love very much that you never put any pressure on us for finishing the paintings, rather encourage to take your time and refine your skills. That is the true painting of an artist ! Life goes with it, feelings, sensations,
perceptions …. ah this!
All is in movement, all is interconnected…
may your be happy
may you be well
may you be safe
Namaste Cara tanto amore 💗🙏🏻e tante grazie ☺️ da Mara

I felt guided by the powerful energy of Tara

I feel very grateful for this experience.
This time I was more confident with the pencil especially when I erased the grit and went over the drawing again. I felt guided by the powerful energy of Tara, graceful but assertive and with more clarity in what I was doing. I will start soon coloring the Tara and I feel very excited to learn more about coloring techniques.
Thank you Carmen for the amazing opportunity of taking the course on line. So well done in every aspect. And I love to dive into Buddhist philosophy and learn more of this art.

White Tara and the Colouring Technique course combo was my second and third course with Carmen but they definitely won’t be my last. As a hopeless painter I am amazed at what I have been able to achieve with Carmen’s help and only using coloured pencils. Thank you Carmen.

Thank you Carmen for providing this amazing and enriching experience of drawing the White Tara. The course was both informative and detailed. Initially was apprehensive about drawing such a figure with so many intricate details but the energy of Tara was such that I could complete the entire drawing with focus and calmness never experienced before. Loved every bit of if.

I loved getting to know White Tara so intimately. The program was outstanding. Carmen has done a fabulous job putting this together in such a clear format.
An artist with any formal education I do not have and very much enjoyed learning from Carmen her vast knowledge of both art history and Buddhism.
Carmen has always been so encouraging and inspiration because I thought I’d never get this far.
I still have much to color and hope to have it done soon.
Thank You!

Confident that I can improve my drawing colouring skills with the courses

Thank you Carmen for another amazing drawing and colouring course, so skilfully presented.
I loved drawing this White Tara: I feel that I have a very complete understanding of what I am drawing.
I have lots to learn but confident that I can improve my drawing and develop some skill with colouring techniques if I follow your Colouring Techniques course. Big, big thanks for making this last course available to your students for an extended time.

I’m looking forward to colouring my White Tara – and to your next course.

This course was beyond my expectations. I learned a lot. I like the eastern and western perspectives. I look at color differently now. Techniques learned here will filter in all off my work.
