Lecture and examples of traditional Tibetan “thangka,” or scroll painting will be presented with a brief history of this beautiful, incredibly detailed art form dating from the 8th century. Drawing the head of the Buddha is the first task of any student delving into traditional Buddhist art. The instructor spent 15 months at a thangka studio in northern India studying with a Tibetan thangka master. Here is an opportunity to slow down from our often too-busy minds and find the peace that comes from following these centuries-old traditions and methods. Bring a curious mind and lots of patience. Maximum 10.

Cost: $52.50 non-member or $47.25 member
