How to make Man­dala Art:

Kids Go Gardening - - News -

1 Gather

flow­ers and leaves. You might also find berries, sticks, seeds, stones and shells. A sym­met­ri­cal flower is an ideal cen­tre piece. If your flower has six petals, choose at least six of each thing for the outer lay­ers. This will keep your art­work sym­met­ri­cal.

2 Make a work space

in­side or out­doors if it’s not too windy. You could make your man­dala on a board so you can move it later. Kacy used a piece of hes­sian which made a great back­ground for her photo.

3 Start in the cen­tre

with your flower (or other cen­tre­piece). Choose a leaf or petal for the next ring and re­peat it evenly around your cen­tre, fo­cus­ing on your cen­tre piece as a guide.

4 Keep build­ing your pat­tern, one cir­cle at a time. 5 Take a photo so that you can share your mas­ter­piece with fam­ily and friends.
