FAMILY ART DAY / Handalas!

Art Start hosts FREE Family Art Days every Saturday.  Join us this week as we immerse ourselves in the art of "handalas!"

Mandalas are used across cultures as sacred images of our souls. But you don't have to be traditionally spiritual or religious to connect with your deepest self! This project uses our hands to "point out" what we love about ourselves on the inside. These abstract self portraits are beautiful, vibrant, and fun to make!
