Inspiration of Geometry: Drawing a Rose Window.
March 13, 2021 - March 20, 2021
In this unique class, a rose window design from Chartres Cathedral in France will be drawn using only a compass and a ruler.
Two Saturday classes via Zoom from 1PM to 4PM thru Colorado Free University. See their website for more information.
The rose window design is based on the thirty-four uppermost rose windows in the nave, transepts and ambulatory sections of Chartres Cathedral in France that was built mostly between 1194 and 1220. The construction begins with a circle, then through lines, giving birth to the square, then to the octagon, and then to the hexa-decagon (sixteen sides). The hidden underlying structural shapes use geometry in three different ways to produce a final design that is a symbolic and unified whole. The practice of geometry, through constructing the patterns of the universe illustrated in the windows, can be a discipline for intellectual and spiritual insight bringing participants into direct relationship with universal experience and fostering personal expansion.Two Saturday classes via Zoom from 1PM to 4PM thru Colorado Free University.
