About the Artform

Mandalas were created in the service of one of the world's great religions, Buddhism. They were produced in Tibet, India, Nepal, China, Japan, Bhutan, and Indonesia and dated from the 4th century to the present. Now they are created throughout the world, including New York City.
Dot painting originated from aboriginal Australia. Dot art is an artform that is created by the technique of using dots of distinct colors in a pattern to form an art/ image. This artform is very calming and stress-relieving. So, you are in for an artsy and therapeutic experience!
