Product Description
Standards: 2.1 Use lines, shapes/forms, and colors to make patterns (Skills, Processes, Materials & Tools).

The Visual Arts is a vital and engaging learning method for students with severe disabilities. Increasingly, I believe teachers have come to understand the significance of positive approaches to mental health literacy in students with disabilities and its relation to visual art curriculum. As educators strive to encourage students who are learning communication and coping skills, it is a goal that students will develop resiliency. The objective of creating a Mandala not only produces visual art, but it provides a means to individual self-expression as well. Students know they will hear a story about a boy and why he might be sad about his dog. Students understand they can explore these feelings through the way in which they organize representations of similar experiences (i.e., loss of a bird, a cat or a hamster) through constructing shapes and forms to represent images and make patterns in their Mandala circle.

II. Lesson Objective:
The objective of this lesson is that children will continue to develop an emotional vocabulary that allows them an outlet to express their feelings.
