30 Nov 4th Grade – Four Part Symmerty inspired by Tibetan Mandalas
This lesson is ALWAYS successful… and for EVERY student. I have used different artists or techniques as inspiration over the years. This time, we looked at Tibetan Mandalas. I showed students a Prezi I created on the Smartboard, Tibetan Mandala Prezi. I found a great time lapse video of Tibetan Monks creating a sand mandala. The kids love it! Feel free to borrow!
These were created on Bogus Paper with black tempera, then colored in with chalk pastels. I have my students paint each section first with water before coloring with the chalks. This makes the artwork much more vibrant in color and eliminates a large portion of dust from the chalks.
They turned out great! They looked great hanging in our halls!
