Thangka Painting Course Info, Schedule, Prices

Overview

For full immersion, students may enroll in the Science of Creative Arts track as their main course of study. Alternatively, students may attend Studio Class 1 in the morning and choose other activities in the afternoon (meditation practice or shedra courses).

Throughout Module 1 & 2 students will work on creating a thangka from beginning to end under the personal direction of RD Salga. Each student will advance at their own pace and to the depth that time and ability allow. Studio Class 1 each day will be the time when fundamental information about materials and techniques will be shared with the whole class. Thus, if one is only attending one class a day, this would be the class to attend.
