Atelier Mandala Mandala art workshop art therapy montreal

Mandala Workshop

Mandala is a Sanskrit word that means circle. To make a mandala is to draw, paint, or in some other way, create a circular motif starting in the centre and moving outwards in a concentric pattern. In many spiritual traditions, this practice is a form of meditation. Besides providing a calming effect, the making of mandalas also encourages self-development and a sense of wholeness.

Clinic for Failed Paintings / Clinique pour les mauvaises peintures

Sunday Afternoon Clinic for Failed Paintings
(or: You CAN teach an old dog new tricks!)

Check your attic, basement, closet, crawl space, garage. Did you find bad old art? This is your chance. Bring a canvas you are not happy with. We will thoroughly and strategically transform it over 2 consecutive Sunday afternoons, discussing the means at our disposal, so to speak, for achieving controlled destruction. The phoenix will rise from the ashes. It doesn’t matter if the painting is acrylic or oil. It doesn’t even matter if you were the painter. The bad art will be gone, and the makeover will inspire you to do new and exciting things.
