I have posted on this mandala lesson previously HERE.
This project is super detailed so takes a LONG time for students to complete! We started these in September!
I found the original lesson posted HERE.
I pre-trace all the circles using a bowl on 9x12" drawing paper.
Students cut them out then fold them twice or three times. Draw a design in one of the sections. Then unfold and trace that same design onto all the other sections (we use windows).
We watched a video on Tibetan sand mandalas at the start of this lesson.
Outline using a fine tip Sharpie or micron pen.
Test out colours and practice gradients on scrap paper.
Students had to include a gradient in at least ne area.
