Fourth grade artists learned about the art of drawing a mandala as part of their study of Asian art. They can tell you that the word ‘mandala’ in the ancient Sanskrit language means ‘circle’. A mandala is a spiritual symbol in Indian religions and represents the universe.
Georgetown’s artists created their own mandalas, enjoying the meditative process of working from the center of the circle to the outside edges, adding pattern and shapes to create a pleasing design.
We turned our mandala art into beautiful ornaments, adding printed pine needles and a watercolor background.
I Can: describe a mandala; create a mandala using line and shape; create a pleasing color combination using warm and cool colors.
