Mandala pie

 

This document is designed for 6-12-year-old children to create a beautiful mandala piece.

What is a Mandala?

A mandala is typically made up of circles and squares extending outward from a central point.

Mandalas are a rich part of art and culture. The word ‘mandala’ is originated from the Sanskrit word, and it means ‘essence,’ ‘a circle.’ Its symbol represents the entire universe, “the self and inner harmony,” and translates to “completion.”

Mandalas are a great way to learn symmetry, radius, color mixing, and gradients. Children can create their unique mandala by using acrylic paint, colored pencils, watercolors, and more.

How to create a mandala?

Use the mandala pie piece printable to create different designs of the mandala. At first, begin by designing a “pie slice.” Keep the design simple. Let the children use their creativity and the elements of art and craft to enhance the design. Repeat the mandala pie piece to create a full circle. Glue them together with a glue stick, and the mandala is ready. Click here to watch a quick video lesson on Mandala Art.
