Teach students about Repetition, Rhythm and Radial Symmetry with this lesson on how to create a Mandala. Students will be amazed by the beauty of hand drawn forms in a radial pattern. My students were enthralled and their work was truly inspired.
I've included links to some of my first demonstration videos:
How to divide a circle into 12 sections using only a compass and ruler
How to begin to build a mandala
24 Page PowerPoint Presentation (pptx)
PDF of presentation with notes
Step by step student examples
Black and White student mandala examples
Color student mandala examples
Student Self-Evaluation (word doc)
Link to a time-lapse video of building a mandala
A Space to Create
My Zentangle Initial Lesson is a great complement to this project.
