"A Faithful Attempt" is designed to showcase a variety of K-12 art lessons, the work of my art students, as well as other art-related topics. Projects shown are my take on other art teacher's lessons, lessons found in books or else designed by myself.

Symmetrical Mandala Drawings

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.

Some finished Grade 7,8,9 Mandalas:
