The mandala—meaning “circle” in Sanskrit—is a design that originated from Hindu and Buddhist cultures, one that has endured and remained relevant centuries after it was first created. This art form uses circles and other geometric designs to represent the essence of life, and draws a focal point for concentration through its repetitiveness and vibrant play of colours.

Founded by educator and trainer Uma, Little Dots and Dashes will showcase and teach mandala dot painting through a contemporary lens. Come enjoy this meditative practice and take home your own clay lamp at the end of the workshop!

Uma is a Singaporean social entrepreneur, trainer and educator formerly from the RSAF. Her advocacy for mandala dot painting stemmed from her personal experiences during the pandemic. Realising its potential, this therapeutic and meditative art form has evolved into a meaningful exercise for wellness and teambuilding, which Uma achieves through Little Dots and Dashes.
