Join us for Part 2 of our Graffiti Program. We will continue to explore our own graffiti styles with guidance from the Artist.

CANCELED // Creating From the Center: Mandalas for Beginners @ Main Library
Mar 24 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
CANCELED // Creating From the Center: Mandalas for Beginners @ Main Library | Dedham | Massachusetts | United States

Join us for an opportunity to get yourself into a relaxed & meditative space, one which you can create for yourself any time you want.

We will learn to draw a mandala, another word for sacred circle. The intricate look of a mandala comes from following a rhythm, which can produce stunning results. This type of repetition can be very relaxing and is a great way to bring yourself gently into the present. Mandalas can also work as a form of visual journaling, boost your creativity, memory and problem solving skills, as well as provide stress relief and spiritual self-expression.

This simple practice is not only powerful, it is fun and exciting!

Appropriate for adults & teens. Space is limited so please register through www.eventbrite.com. Any questions email: gbird@minlib.net

CANCELED // Matchbox Art @ Main Library
Mar 26 @ 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm
CANCELED // Matchbox Art @ Main Library | Dedham | Massachusetts | United States

It only takes a few inches of paper to conjure entire worlds: a shrine, a memory, a gift for a sweetheart, a travel memento, a home for a poem, a mini collection of mini images… the possibilities are endless!

If you are the kind of person who hates to waste anything, this project is for you! We’ll use the simple and humble matchbox & discarded magazines to get creative and come up with ideas that are ‘outside-the-box’.

Registration is required. Appropriate for adults, teens and children 8+
