What you'll do

After explanations of the basic materials and techniques, from which you can choose your style, you will be encouraged to focus on yourself to see how you feel and to make room for your creativity ... And most importantly: don't think too much!
Then, let's go : in action in front of your white page (or black ...)! Of course, I will be there to guide you through the creative process, to find with you the style that makes you comfortable, or the one that represents your challenge. My intention is that you feel confident, explore the material and find your inspiration, but most of all, assure you take time with yourself and explore your emotions and ability to let yourself go.
That's when you learn a lot about yourself, especially about what you ask yourself ... Our most strict judge is usually our own selves!
During or after the class, I can also answer many of your questions about the history and geography of Québec: I have taught it for years and have guided several tourists / immigrants around the area.
Other things to note
The workshops are offered at my home, quiet apartment, clean and safe. Unfortunately, pets are not accepted. For any question, do not hesitate to contact me. I can not wait to get to know you and set up the place to put you at ease!

I have post-secondary degrees in teaching and fine arts. During 10 years of teaching in school, I noticed the calming effect of the mandala by sharingthis practice with my students. I then lived in Peru for 4 years, where local artists and yoga teachers taught me techniques for creating mandalas and for meditation, and their therapeutic functions related to emotions. I have also been practicing yoga and meditation for over 3 years. I am also a photographer. Art therapy is a passion that I love to share. I sincerely believe that I can contribute a lot by sharing my knowledge about drawing and coloring mandalas as well as the basics of meditation, teaching how this practice can help you to know ,take care and express yourself and relax, no matter the age!

This experience was more than I could ever expect.Marjolaine was very kind and thoughtful in communicating how to tailor the experience specific to my needs leading up to the event.She has a wide variety of knowledge with regard to Mandalas and Yoga and therapeutic aspect of merging the two with artShe is very knowledgeable and well traveled and it translates in her craft.Being a beginner I really enjoyed her step by step guidance and support.I was completely engaged from start to finish and she really made me feel comfortable to express my emotions through creating the mandalas.I was able to create a beautiful Piece I never expected I could.I would definitely recommend this experience and take it again or any other of her experiences when I’m in Montreal next.Thank you again😊

Un beau moment paisible et créatif qui nous ramène à soi. c'est une sorte de méditation créative. on expérimente le lâcher prise, ne pas avoir peur de la page blanche et de l'imperfection, on voit l'erreur comme une opportunité d'amélioration... c'est un bel exercice pour se recentrer (on en perd la notion du temps) et pour écouter son inconscient d'une certaine façon, son âme d'enfant. J'ai adoré et je le conseille à toute personne !

I was able to book an amazing experience for my sister’s birthday Who lives in Montreal. She had a really good time knowing the basics of Mandalas and she even bought all the markers and paper needed to practice at home. She describe it as a wonderful way to meditate.🤗
