Drawing Crash Course: A Meditation on the Images of Buddha

This workshop investigates the rare and wonderful set of thangka paintings from the Walter Norman Koelz Collection of Himalayan Art at the University of Michigan Museum of Anthropology. Come to explore and understand Buddhist art, and its ritual use and symbolism. Using a "tigse" or geometric grid composed with sacred proportions, participants will learn how to draw the seated figure of Buddha. This practice of drawing Buddha is not only an ancient art form, but it is also regarded as a meditation, which cultivates mindfulness, compassion, and wisdom. All levels welcome; no experience necessary.
