Mandala Mondays

Teens, bring out your true colors on Mandala Mondays. Mandalas are colorful religious and spiritual designs representing the universe. Tibetan Buddhist monks would painstakingly create beautifully intricate mandalas using sand and paint.  We will provide the designs, colored pencils and fine-tipped markers so you can make your own work of art. Relax and refresh in the Teen space on the 2nd floor every other Monday, 4:30-5:30 p.m., beginning October 3.   Best for ages 13-19.
