Join us for a special art class with Marguerite Genest, Ed.D. on Tuesday, March 7 at 5:00 pm. Marguerite will teach us how to create our own Mandalas. The word “mandala,” in ancient Sanskrit, means both circle and center. Creating these incredible pieces of art has been a great way to “turn off” daily stress and decrease anxiety for centuries. They are also a way for us to understand how we see ourselves, our world, and our life’s purpose.


Marguerite Genest, Ed.D. is an educational consultant and artist currently living in Kennebunk. Originally from Western MA, she holds a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and a doctorate in Educational Psychology. As an instructor of Social Emotional Learning and executive functioning skills, she focuses on the development of self-awareness that ultimately determines one’s view of self and the external world.  She uses art, including the meditative process of mandala drawing, to reduce anxiety and enhance self-confidence. She exhibits her art in galleries and shows in New England, and paints commissioned portraits of children and pets. To learn more, see her website at
