Twirl's Colorful cosmos 2018
Friday and Saturday, Sept. 14th & 15th beginning at 7pm in the Twirl Courtyard
A Mandala is commonly defined as a geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. In various spiritual traditions, as well as Jungian Psychology, mandalas may be employed for focusing attention, as a spiritual guidance tool, for establishing a sacred space and as an aid to meditation.
This piece is a multi-faceted exploration of the Mandala through hands-on creativity. Using a diversity of colorful materials, we will create our own symbolic cosmos. Throughout the evening, the mandalas will expand in the Twirl courtyard as community members add their own individual expressions to the whole, culminating in a macro mandala in PLAY SPACE.
Play with geometry, pattern, color and light by using the materials provided to contribute to the community installations inside the Twirl courtyard. Relax, enjoy, connect, create.
This program is offered free to local and visiting children and families thanks to the generous support from individuals and foundations. Learn how you can support this and other programs like it at twirltaos.org/donate.
