Drawing Mandalas or your favourite memory of this year at Witton
A mandala is a spiritual symbol in Buddhism and Hinduism. It’s a symbolic representation of the universe with an inner and outer world. The word mandala comes from Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language. Literally mandala means “circle.” The circle is seen as a magical form, without beginning and end, just as the universe is believed to have no end.
You have a choice of 2 tasks today. As it is the last week of the year, you could draw your most favourite memory of year 6. For example, it could be you playing with your friends on the trim trail or in your favourite lesson. You might have gone swimming or represented the school in the football or athletics team. It could be something that made you feel proud of yourself. Be creative!
Create your very own mandalas. Take your time and press lightly on your pencil. Use circles, swirls, zig zags, triangles, stars or any other shapes and patterns. After, colour them in to make them nice and bright. You could even use natural materials that you find outside to create one. Be creative!
You could use:
- Pencil crayons/paint/felt tips/gel pens
- Collage materials (old magazines/newspapers)
- Natural resources to recreate scenes or to make a mandala
