In one of my classes last week I taught about mandalas. About how they represent continuity, spirituality, and balance. Everyone received a paper with a pre-drawn circle and a center point. From there everyone was on their own. Some people divided it up into equal triangles like a pizza and made them all different colors. Some people made a symmetrical drawing within the circle. I tried to make the same shapes in each area. I’m a big fan of symmetry, but I’m not really great at being precise. So it was an interesting experience to try to replicate the same design without a measuring tool or straight edge.This is what I came up with. I had fun making these with the members.
Have you ever made your own mandala?
