Join us for a BYOB Mandala workshop with Nithya of mydecorify at Indigo & Violet Studio!
Mandala means "circle" in Sanskrit and is traditionally a geometric design that represents the universe as a whole and finding the symmetry of the world. Many cultures all over the world create mandalas but given the origin of the word I love incorporating it into my South Asian-inspired artwork.
This class is an easy way to get introduced to the art form and make a detailed decorative piece with marker and canvas. I will be going over simple designs that can be used throughout the piece symmetrically and can't wait to see your own ideas that you add in to make it yours!
No drawing or painting experience is required. Share this link with your creative friends and make a happy hour out of it!

Meet Nithya and mydecorify:
Hi! I'm Nithya, a digital artist, and business owner, and I am so excited to be bringing my passion for art to all of you through these workshops! I have been painting since a very young age and I also enjoyed DIY crafts like jewelry-making and mod-podge collages. I continued painting through high school and college and even took a few art classes to keep practicing and learn new mediums. I then began creating digital art during the pandemic and naturally gravitated towards South Asian fashion and incorporated Mandalas, traditional South Asian dresses, and henna designs into my art pieces.
Through that journey, I discovered my passion for wanting to bring crafts and DIY projects to people in a sustainable way. I saw a gap in the creative world between scrolling on Pinterest and going to craft stores to actually buy the supplies and oftentimes a lot of those surplus supplies would get wasted after one project. I wanted to create a solution for this by bringing curated DIY kits with just the right amount of supplies and nothing more. After creating some initial DIY kits for my site, I added my digital art to my shop as prints, stickers, and notebooks and it's been amazing being able to showcase my culture alongside the other products. I can't wait to expand and add more DIY kits and continue to grow and make more art.
