The Mandala

In my AVID class, we recently finished up our mandala project in which students were asked to draw a Mandala and complete an essay along the same lines of the drawing. Maṇḍala is a word that means “circle”. In the Hindu and Buddhist religious traditions their sacred art often takes a mandala form. In class students were asked to create a mandala using symbols that are important in their lives. The picture above is from Aubrey who choose to use her faith as the focus of her mandala and use secondary items of importance to surround the focus point.

  1. Mr. McClung, I really enjoyed reading this post. I think this is a great assignment where children can express themselves. The child’s picture you chose did a wonderful job! I love how she chose one big focus and things around it. I have defiantly considered maybe doing this kind of thing at the beginning of the year to learn a little about my students.
