In the Tibetan tradition, paintings and statues are not just pieces of art – they are tools that act as a support for visualisations and meditation practices. All aspects of the artistic discipline directly reflect the Buddhist path to enlightenment. In this course, Ray teaches us the traditional foundational techniques of this art form, beginning with drawing the face of the historical Buddha, Buddha Shakyamuni.
This introductory class is aimed at complete beginners, no prior art experience is necessary! Returning students are also welcome to attend, and will instead focus on drawing the body of the Buddha. Materials (please bring along): A3 Cartridge Paper, HB Pencil and Sharpener, Eraser, 30cm or longer ruler. Ray studied Buddhist art for many years under master artist Andy Weber in the UK. He now lives and works at Chenrezig Institute, where he is the resident artist.
