As you know, (if you know anything at all about me) I am passionate about the art of mandala. HERE is your opportunity to see the incredible wonder of a mandala being created in the community by Tibetan Monks. I have had the honor in the past and look forward to this opportunity as well.
Please take a chance and witness this- it IS AMAZING!
Warm up for the event at Nazareth college by creating your own mandala at Create Art 4 Good Studios on March 20th.
