The Mayans speak of Hunab Ku, the Galactic Center and Heart of the Sky, as the giver of movement and measure. The Order of Freemasonry attributes the square and compass, instruments of the architect, as its symbolic tools. By ascribing sacred meaning to forms, proportions and symbols, artists and craftspeople imbue and sanctify their creations.
In this hands-on class we will explore sacred geometry in many forms. Topics include the drawing of the flower of life, painting traditional mosaics of the middle-east, and illustrating the symmetry found in nature. Each class will explore a different topic and no two classes will be the same.
Materials will be provided. Participants are welcome to bring their own art supplies, sketchbooks and canvases.

On Earth Day, April 22nd as well as April 23rd, Sacred Arts Research Foundation will be partnering with Artolution, Golden Drum, M.A.I.S.C and the Borinquen Plaza Community Center North Brooklyn YMCA to create a collaborative mural in the neighborhood of North Brooklyn at 118 Graham Ave. at McKibbin St. This community mural project will be a free public event for families to attend and participate in the completion of a public work of art. By establishing a visual public presence, we hope that the local community will join us in investing in the beautification and education of our city’s future. The theme of the mural will be a pictorial celebration of indigenous and native people & culture from around the world.
We invite YOU! Your families, schools and communities to join us in this awesome event!
