Learn how to create a mandala drawing filled with colourful and intricate patterns. In this activity we’ll look at Mandalas created by artists past and present and learn to design and draw our very own mandala to take home. The process of creating a mandala is inherently mindful and is the perfect peaceful activity for a summer's afternoon. This activity is perfect for students with a keen interest in drawing and illustration and is suitable for children and teens of all skill levels. Students will be guided through the process of creating a circular mandala filled with patterns and line work. We’ll explore a variety of painting and drawing techniques and most of all enjoy the process! In this activity we’ll be using pencil, fine liner and watercolour paints.
