Marker Mandalas (4th) – Elementary art classroom

Marker Mandalas (4th) is part of Elementary art classroom, Art education resources, Elementary art projects, Symmetry art, Art worksheets, Art substitute plans – In previous years I created mandala prints with my 4th graders to teach them about radial symmetry, but this year I wanted to try having them draw them (for their Square 1 Art project) So to begin this lesson I showed students the following video clip to give them some background on what a mandala is (we watch to 220) After watching the first video clip I switch to the following video which shows Tibetan monks creating a sand mandala (something that was referred to in the first video) We watch the first few minutes then I fast forward through some of the middle part and we eventually end with the monks sweeping up their artwork and bringing it out to a body of water to dump it My students LOVE this video! The fact that the artwork is created by slowly pouring sand BLOWS THEM AWAY But the biggest reaction I get is when the monks start sweeping up their artwork NOOOOO! WHAT ARE THEY DOING ! ! Next I quickly show my students a PowerPoint showing the differences between linear symmetry and radial symmetry Once that is done I demo how we are going to create our own mandalas (sorry guys not with sand) To better explain the process I created this video and visual Once students were done drawing their pencil lines, I had them trace over their lines with sharpie Then they used markers to color them in I typically do not use markers but it works well for Square 1 Art Their results are beautiful!
