Who will be teaching?
In an attempt to break free from routine, Gayatri Ravisankar taught herself to draw mandala designs. She is a dentist, health promotion worker, an amateur photographer and a hobby artist. She finds beauty and peace in symmetry. Starting off with some really abstract freehand designs, she discovered the humble mathematical compass, which elevated her designs to a whole new level. Her love for stationery made her experiment with a variety of pens, which brought out different styles. She tries to incorporate her designs in mundane everyday things, in an attempt to draw something different each time. Check out her instagram account @gaya3r_colourbox to have a look at her work.
