Mandala Making: Moving Through Emotions One Flowerpiece at a Time

Misty Dawn’s Entergagement |

In this 60- to 90-minute session, longtime social worker and artist Misty Dawn will teach a small lesson and engage neighbors in a collaborative activity. Participants will learn about the symbolism of shapes, mandalas, and how we process emotions. Together, the group will discuss the variety of seasonal materials used to make individual mandalas. We’ll take pictures and join in a large-group, collaborative mandala-making session. Together, neighborhood residents will feel more care and connection and grow collaboration skills through the creative process.

Participants: Three to 20
Ages: All
Value: $300.00
Requirements: Please provide an indoor or outdoor space with tables for individual work and enough floor space for the creation of a collaborative nature mandala.
