Founded in 2004, Community Mandala Project is an initiative offering art workshops to heal, empower and strengthen people, relationships and communities. We love working with pro-America small businesses, home schools, farms and parallel economies!
In 2002, Donna taught art workshops at Holcomb Community Farm School (Granby, CT) and The Cobb School Montessori (Simsbury, CT).
In 2004, The Bushnell of Hartford hired Donna to design a vibrant art program about ‘community’ for second graders at Plainville Community Schools (CT).
That’s when Community Mandala Project was born.
After several incredible years, the first Community Mandala Collage workshop was adapted for thriving after domestic violence and addiction recovery. Since then, CMP has developed dozens of programs and facilitated hundreds of workshops.
In 2014, Hartford Performs brought CMP onboard with their team of 100+ teaching artists servicing Hartford public and charter schools where CMP workshops were very popular.
In addition to schools, CMP has taught at senior centers, veteran community centers, festivals, recovery clubs, special events, yoga studios, home parties and more.
Today, the workshop facilitator has taken to the road. She is currently packaging workshops for download and offers Community Mandala Puzzles and Murals in Tucson, Arizona and beyond.
