How To Make A Mandala Art Resource Book
If you would like to use the resources in this blog as part of your classroom curriculum, I have created a resource book with everything that you need. The resource book includes:
-2 different options for doing the activity (colored picture or black and white outline)
-4 different templates for you to choose from (although you can always draw your own template)
-The directions for this particular activity (in color so that it is easier for students to read)
-The steps for creating a mandala (this is something that I wish someone had told me when I was first learning how to do it)**Check out my store at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/The-Art-
While you can find a lot of information on the internet about mandala art, it can be hard to find a single source that covers everything from the basics to the more advanced. Also, chances are your search will turn up a few sites that aren’t very good. So I’ve decided to create a blog that covers all of these topics and more.
Trying to learn how to create mandala art is something I wish I had when I was first starting out. Although there are some good books out there, they were always missing some details or other parts were confusing. Because of this, I wanted to create this blog for those who want to learn about simple mandala art.
This blog is going to be divided into different categories so you can skip ahead if you already know the basics and just want more advanced information or you have mastered the basics and just want more information in general.
If you’re brand new to mandalas, the first thing you need to know is how they’re made. The basic process is really simple, but it’s easiest if you break it down into steps.
So let’s get started with step one: The Preparation Phase.*
There are many styles of mandala art that have been created over the centuries. There is no right or wrong way to create a mandala, so don’t worry if you feel your mandala isn’t perfect. I recommend starting with paper and pencil, but when you are comfortable move on to using paints and other media. When designing your mandala, try to use a focal point. This is where most of the detail in your mandala will be concentrated. It can be an object in itself, or it could be a smaller part of the larger picture.
I hope these tips help you get started making your own mandalas!
Mandala art is a very popular form of art that has been around for thousands of years. In fact, mandala art is a spiritual and religious art form that dates back to ancient times.
The word mandala is Sanskrit for “circle.” A mandala is typically made in a circular shape and represents the universe, the cosmos, or the human mind. The images are created using geometric shapes, often repeating patterns or concentric circles. Mandalas can have as few as one color or as many as thousands. They may be created on paper or canvas or even on the ground.
The images are used for meditation and prayer and also to help in healing through color therapy and chakra balancing. There are many different styles of mandalas including Tibetan Buddhist, Hindu and Taoist, Native American, Jewish, Christian and Islamic, among others. You can find them in any number of mediums including paint on canvas, woodcarving and beadwork, needlepoint on cloth, or quilting on fabric.
The basic steps to create a mandala drawing using the pencils are:
1. First, draw a circle and divide it into four quadrants with two intersecting lines. This will be your foundation for the remaining drawing.
2. Next, decide on the colors you want to use in the painting and prepare them by putting them next to your work space.
3. Select a color and start shading in small sections of the circle beginning at the centre point of the intersection of the lines and working outward systematically like a clock face.
4. When you have finished shading, erase any remaining pencil marks that could be seen through your chosen color or that might detract from your final design.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 with each of your colours until you have completed your painting or have decided to stop coloring your mandala.
6. To finish off and provide additional interest to your design, add special features in various places throughout the mandala such as flowers or stars (a popular feature). Or you can use a technique known as “dotting” which entails carefully placing small dots of paint throughout the design in varying shades.”
Hello! I’m Rachel. I’m a graphic artist, an ink painter, and a writer. I love to create mandala art. The mandala is an ancient spiritual symbol that has shown up in various forms in different cultures over the ages.
In Tibetan Buddhism, the mandala is a sacred space created by painting or drawing on paper or cloth. A mandala can serve as a tool for spiritual growth and development, contemplation and meditation.
The word “mandala” comes from two Sanskrit words: man, which means “mind,” and dala, which means “circle.” A mandala is essentially a tool used for focusing one’s thoughts. When we create mandalas–whether they’re drawn with ink or colored pencils or crayons or whatever medium we choose–we are creating sacred spaces for ourselves to be mindful and slow down.
When you draw your own mandalas, you are practicing mindfulness, enhancing your attention span and focus, and developing concentration skills. You are also learning how to clear your mind of distractions so that you can open up space for creativity…and for self-discovery.
