Mandala Art as a Healing Practice with Dr. Sharon Cook

August 21, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Join Forge for a special in-person arts session led by Dr. Sharon Cook. Sharon was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, which returned as metastatic in 2018. Throughout her cancer journey, Sharon has turned to artistic pursuits for coping and healing. During this two-hour session, Sharon will teach participants about Mandala philosophy and techniques and lead us in the creation of our own works for art.

Sharon will blend teachings from Mandalas and Zentangle, another meditative arts practice typically done with a black pen on white paper. Participants can be inspired by the materials and choose to make black and white or colorful creations (or anything in between!).

We will begin at 2 p.m, with light refreshments before learning about and creating Mandalas with Sharon beginning at 2:30 p.m. Please join us for an afternoon of making art and joining in community with one another.

About the materials: Forge will provide all materials for in-person participants.

Register here.
