This hands-on drawing course taps into traditional Buddhist art and Deity images in the Tibetan tradition.
They are not just pieces of art -- they are maps of the enlightened state that act as a support for meditation.
Images and other representations are also regarded as actual deities in accordance with the Refuge vows and, as such, form a basis of faith and devotion.
In this class Ray teaches us how to draw Buddha Shakyamuni using traditional techniques and covers some of the symbolic meaning of the image.
This introductory course is aimed at complete beginners, no prior art experience is necessary.
Students with some experience of Buddhist iconography gained in previous courses are also welcome and will have the opportunity to study an alternative deity.
Ray has studied Buddhist art for many years under master artist Andy Weber in the UK and now lives and works at Chenrezig where he is the resident artist.
