Mandala Drawing Instructional Video

This morning my daughter joined me in a Zoom call to co-teach a Mandala Drawing module for members of her school community. The attendees included kids ranging in age from 5 to 12 and some parents.

I was amazed at the range of creativity, the artistic confidence and the new perspective this audience brought! I don't do live online teaching, so it was a completely new experience for me and to have folks follow along, ask questions, share their work during a mid-drawing check-in made it so much more enjoyable.

I'm now contemplating doing more sessions online that are not hyperlapsed but in real time and that have an interactive section as well as a forum for students' work to be shared. What do you think? Should I pursue this idea further? I'd be curious to hear your thoughts.

Ok, so now for those of you wanting to follow along and make your own Mandalas, this is a 20-minute video with a 15-minute instruction from yours truly followed by a 4-minute tutorial from my almost-6-year old. At the end of both our videos you can see images of works shared by attendees from this morning's tutorial.

If you make mandalas with us, do send a photo, so we can appreciate your creativity!

I hope this is helpful and I look forward to seeing what you made!

And if you just want to color in some mandalas, not make them, be sure to visit the #choosehappywithmm Doodles Collection! I'm adding new designs every day :)

Until next time,

Mansi.

A simple painting technique that leads to some very interesting story-telling. Can be done as an independent activity or become a shared family experience.

This was such a fun session! We did some ink smooshing and doodling. I demonstrated three ways you could play with watercolors to get beautiful backgrounds. Have a look-see.
