|Circle Journal, ©Denyse Dar 2011|
The idea of circle journals started a long time ago and have probably existed in some form for centuries. The best way to get a sense of the meaning for this type of journal is to think of it as a game of Round Robin - where everyone in the circle gets a turn to do an entry in your album! Each person decides on a theme for their journal and then it is passed to the next person for them to create an original work in your journal based on your theme. A variety of materials are used (the sky is the limit here!) including but not limited to scrap-booking papers, salvaged items and even original drawings & paintings! At the end, a unique journal is returned to you with some amazing creations and in the process, you will have forged some amazing new friendships! NOTE: this class meets for 4 consecutive Fridays in October. NOTE: $40 supply fee for journal and all materials for all 4 weeks - paid to instructor at the first workshop.
|Mandala #2, ©Denyse Dar 2011|
The Mandala (Sanskrit for “circle” or “completion”) has a long history and is recognized for its deep spiritual meaning and representation of wholeness. One of the best ways to understand what Mandalas are about is to make your own. One of the most frequent objections is, "But I'm not an artist... I can't even draw a straight line." This is ideal, because the mandala is built on a circle, not a straight line! Besides, I'm going to help you along the way. When you reach your destination, you will have a representation of something meaningful and personal…a snapshot of you for a brief moment in time expressed through your mandala. $25 supply fee for all materials and handmade paper paid to instructor at the workshop.
