Learn Thangka Painting
Sunapati Thanka School offers some short courses designed for anyone interested in learning and understanding the iconography, methods, materials and techniques involved in the process of creation of Thangka paintings.
Keep in mind that a thangka painting is not only a decoration or a creation of beauty, but is the mean to convey the iconography and lineage essential for a Buddhist practitioner.
This doesn’t mean that it is an activity done merely in religious contexts.
It’s an art for everybody, it’s fun and it’s a very effective healing practice as well.
