As part of the Lounge Series, Martinsville artist Lynne Medsker led a class on mandala making. Medsker explained that mandalas can be seen throughout nature and in art history, and can be used as a form of relaxation. Boeglin and Knies attended for something fun to do together. "We've been friends a long time," Knies said.
