These are Coloured pencils that can be applied to the page and then use brush and water to create watercolour and mixed media effects.

Sacred geometry is nature's language of creation and it can be found in the tiniest places like our DNA to the cosmic patterns like galaxy. In this workshop Magda will take you on an inner journey through a powerful pattern called Mandala. You will explore different mediums (drawing, painting, mixed media) to create your own personal design. It is very easy and you don’t have to be an artist to create something beautiful and meaningful. For more information, and to register, call Magda 613-332-7085.
