Draw and Colour Celtic Mandalas - Sydney Course

We offer training in face to face and/or online learning formats.

  • Please see scheduled class for delivery format.
  • Online classes delivered via livestream video over Zoom.

This course, Draw & Colour Celtic Mandalas, will take you step-by-step through the techniques of drawing Celtic patterns within a circle. We will be starting with small designs of Celtic knots, key patterns and spiral designs using proven formulas that are easy to follow, including the single coil through to quadruple coil.

We will then build them into larger designs and learn how to layer the different patterns into one mandala design. At each step we will complete the mandalas by outlining in pen and applying colour (using your choice of pencils, markers or paints), to create a collection of Celtic Mandala artworks.

Drawing and colouring celtic mandalas is a great creative outlet and can be a very relaxing activity!
