Art School, Sacred Geometry School, Mandala Art School
Introduction to The Academy of Geometric Arts (TAGA) in Sussex, England.
TAGA workshops normally take place at The Paddock Studios in Lewes which has a warm and light classroom perfect for classes of up to 10
students at a time. Stephen Meakin is now offering private tuition for 1 or 2 students at a time. This is a one or two day workshop at The Academy of Geometric Arts on the high street in
* Please note: All students are required to attend the introductory course before attending advanced classes.
When 'concept' becomes 'experience' our geometry becomes sacred.
Brief History of TAGA.
The Academy was founded by Stephen Meakin in 2010 and in the last 6 years over 200 students have attended
classes from all over Europe to study on short courses in Sacred Geometry and Mandala Arts at TAGA in Lewes. The Academy in Lewes is currently one of the only schools in Europe where the ancient
cannons of the Geometers Craft is shared openly to initiate students in the use of geometry as a symbolic language and as a contemplative art form in the spiritual imagination.
A short note from the Principal:
"Yes you can make beautiful works of art and I hope that you make art forever. So you have time! Relax
because the real work you will need to do will be the work you do on 'yourself' but it's great to have an art practice to keep us occupied on our magnificent journey
through space-time. You will make many circles so treat yourself to a good quality compass. The
life-force within you knows everything you want to know and need to know. You can access your 'cleverness' by being totally full of 'wonderment' yes look at the flowers and
be amazed! (do not worry what others think for they are responsible for their own reality). Sometimes we all 'miss the point' just as in life, with geometry is no different sometimes we make a big
mess so practice and practice eventually makes perfect. Words have power, magic and meaning so make use of your etymology dictionary. Geometry will 'unfold' in space before
your eyes so try to keep an eye on your Centre Point! Experience your geometry as if it were a rose growing in quick-time right in front of you. Study the Temples of your ancestors as if
they were the maps to hidden treasure. Try to see the book of nature (that's all the stuff both inside and outside of all of us) as interconnected and interdependent. Please
don't use your pencil eraser like a crazy person better just to start again on a new page but remember that one pencil has 10 shades of grey so be soft and gentle until you are sure what you are
doing. The Flower of Life is easy to draw but Study this little book for it will lead you home from the beginning. May you have a wonderful journey." Stephen Meakin
