Marta Shiráh Lagos
At the workshop, my work from the beginning is connected with the "psycho-emotional" and I call it like that because I understand that to contemplate or paint a "mandala" or "circular drawing" helps people to overcome painful situations, diseases, mournings for physical or psychological loss or periods of deep sadness and depression. This stage of the process is conducted individually and lasts eight to ten classes, maybe more. After a while of practice and experience, we begin to create our own mandalas, a more creative aspect, we learn different visual and artistic techniques without neglecting our own personal. Furthermore, being the mandala my artistic expression, I paint personal mandalas upon request and present my work in different cultural spaces and collectively with my more advanced students together with the Red Mandalas where I belong since its founding.
