Color Workshop

promo-ColorWorkshop-Chippy1200Are you like the chipmunk collecting lots of art supplies and saving them for a rainy day?

The rainy day has arrived…

I have a confession. I’ve been guilty of collecting art supplies, lots of them, and not using them. Beautiful tins of colored pencils, collections of watercolor markers, gel pens, Copics, TomBows, Winsor Newton, and Posca paint pens fill my home studio.

Do you have lots of art supplies that are going unused too? It’s time to dust them off and start playing.

Join me for a color workshop that I’m hosting in the Sharing Circle. Get inspired, learn new techniques, try out some different color combinations, and connect with mandala enthusiasts from all over the world.

Let’s play with color this season!

Host of Mandalafest, the 100 Mandalas Challenge, and the Sharing Circle, and author of “The Mandala Guidebook: How to Draw, Paint, and Color Expressive Mandala Art.”

Hi I’m Kathryn Costa. I love color and I think you’d agree it shows in my book, “The Mandala Guidebook: How to Draw, Paint, and Color Expressive Mandala Art.”

There was a time when I was really timid when it came to using color. In fact, I was down right afraid to use color. Most of my design work was done in black and white with “spot” color.

What changed? Deep inside, I wanted to have fun with color and to play with it. I started noticing color everywhere and I was inspired. With each creative project, I tried using different color combinations. Before I knew it, I was getting compliments again and again thanking me for adding gorgeous color to our world.

I love that adult coloring has grown in popularity. If you are rediscovering the joys of coloring and want some guidance. Check out my video above to preview my teaching style.

I hope you’ll be inspired to join me and my mandala family in the Sharing Circle. Your membership includes a member library filled with several coloring books to download, instruction on how to create your own mandalas, and lots of ideas. The best part is the support that you get from other mandala enthusiasts.
