Magical Mandalas – an Arts & Wellness presentation by Rachel Chase
December 21, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Celebrate the winter solstice!
Take some time for you to connect with your inner light with a visualization exercise and centering contemplation. Draw and paint with ACA Arts & Wellness Ambassador, Rachel Chase to express the magic and beauty of the season. Winter Solstice is a special time of year. Use a small canvas board, paint, glue and glitter to express imagery that livens up and lightens up your heart. When it’s chilly outside, find the magic and warmth inside. A mandala is a visual expression of wholeness and creates a way to focus your mind so that you feel connected with life.
