We are delighted to have Mark Duggan from Dublin Shamblaha (Meditation) Center to join me for this course. Mark will lead the meditation during this course and assist you with any related questions you may have.

Introduce painting tools and materials, basic brush strokes and painting methods, and continue to build skills for painting plants and animals of increasing complexity. Try your hand at these historically and culturally important methods, and create some beautiful paintings of your own.
