Historically it was not permissible for the Buddha to appear in artworks or for images of the Buddha to be replicated, but as attitudes and religious beliefs evolved, so too did the relaxation of this practice. Today, Buddha appears in a plethora of ways and thankfully so. The image of the Buddha is one of the most beautifully rendered and reproduced images of our time and serves to honour the beliefs of millions of those who identify as Buddhists worldwide.

In this one day workshop, we will create our own Buddha masterpiece incorporating floral motifs using negative space as our basis for this work. We will work from either photographs or sculptural buddhas in the studio, the techniques employed have been designed for the beginner artist to create drawn images with ease. We will also incorporate smart phone technology along side traditional gestural drawing techniques to create your very own personalised representation of the Buddha.

Participation is limited to 10 people only. If you would like to book in for this workshop or read more details, please click here. Saturday 10th September, 9.30 – 3.30. $95.
