Description

The Art of Deity Eyes and Face Painting: Devotional worship to your Ishtadev

Learn this special practice by attending our newest workshop into the art and design of deity face painting. You will practise lines and dots, receive an introduction for different designs, and be guided by basic colour theory tips to choose the perfect colours for your Ishtadev.

The simple, step-by-step explanations offer an enjoyable experience for any skill level. It's ideal for beginners to learn the basics and for experienced painters to get inspired with new ideas, too.

Decorating the faces of your own Ishtadev is an act of worship and deepens your connection with your personal deities.
