Looking for an outlet for your creative side? Then why not try your hand at Mandala Art. Mandala, a spiritual symbol in Buddhism and Hinduism that represents the universe, has also turned into a fad the last few years. Created on a base of a circle, drawing a mandala has now been adopted as a tool for therapy and relaxation. While it looks intricate, you actually follow a rhythm, with a little effort, turns into a stunning piece of art. And to help you with that, Penkraft, an institute in Thane, organises a course-in-a-box, where you get everything you need to be able to pick up a skill like this.
According to them, colours speak to us, expressing a mix of emotions and the mandala is one tool that can help us relate. They have special Mandala Art classes, where you can either pick it up as a hobby or pursue it professionally, so that you can train kids in this art form. There are 3-hour workshops and 3-day Teacher’s Training Courses that you can enroll for, at Penkraft. What’s awesome is that while you’re having so much fun doing this, you also end up learning a fun skill.
So if you think that art can calm the mind and open up an outlet that is creative yet fun, give this a shot. If you think you can help influence young minds by making a difference and helping them channel their energies into hobbies that teach and let them have fun, pick this up and start making a difference.
