    Impromptu Mandala Class

    "The artist one day falls through a hole in the brambles, and from that moment he is following the dark rapids of an underground river which may sometimes flow so near to the surface that the laughing picnic parties are heard above."
    ~Cyril Connolly

    The girls had friends over to play, bringing the household kid total to 5 for the entire day. After lunch, the girls wanted to draw, and my younger daughter suggested teaching everyone how to draw a mandala. So an impromptu mandala drawing class came together! The girls were really excited to learn, asking lots of questions, the younger ones verifying that they were doing it "right" (and me reiterating that there is no right). When we finished the first mandala, discussing as we went, they jumped immediately into a second!

    I didn't show them any of mine until after we were finished, as I didn't want to skew the process. I just drew a simple mandala, walking them through the process, with the girls choosing their own symbols throughout. They named their work in funky lettering as well! I've got to tell you, my heart was jumping around, I was so happy to see their curiosity and focus in creating their mandalas.

    When moms came to pick up the kids, they were so cute, showing off their creations. I snapped some pix before they left. I think their mandalas are really cool!
