Total Duration: 44 hours
Saturdays, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
During this course students are introduced to the concept of the Bodhisattva. A Bodhisattva is a fully awakened being that dedicates their life towards helping others realize their potential. Bodhisattvas operate through the greatest motivation to end all suffering through loving compassion (karunamaya). Bodhisattvas have a rich art historical tradition. Through lecture, powerpoint, artbooks and master artists, students will learn a variety of Bodhisattva names, identifications and stories.
Students complete one painting of the Bodhisattva of Compassion (Avalokitesvara).
