Coral Springs Museum of Art
Eight Tibetan Buddhist monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery, students of H.H. Dalai Lama, will visit the Coral Springs Museum of Art to share their teachings and artistic expression with the community.
The monks will devote each day to constructing the renowned sand mandala. Millions of colored grains of sand will be carefully laid out in detailed patterns and diagrams, which represent sacred textual Buddhist imagery.
At the Tibetan Butter Sculpture Workshop, traditionally, Tibetan monks created elaborate sculptures of plants and animals inspired by stores of Buddha using butter from yak milk. Under the instruction of the monks, you will learn how to create beautiful, colorful flowers using non-toxic Play Doh.
The Coral Springs Museum of Art is one of only 33 locations the monks are visiting during their 2018 North American Sacred Art Tour, so this is one experience you will not want to miss.
Space is limited for this event. For tickets and additional information, visit http://bit.ly/CSMOAMonks18.
