Art Journalling Group: Lesson V - Mandala

Every week, Authentic Parenting hosts an art journalling group. You are welcome to join in at any time. We do a new assignment each week, and participants can send in a picture their creation via email (mamapoekie at yahoo dot com) by Wednesday the next week.

New assignment: 

For this week's assignment, we'll be doin Mandala. Mandala's are your creative expression within the circle. In Hinduism and Buddhism, Mandalas have a spiritual signification. In fact, being confined to a circle sort of frames your mind. In the case of concentric designs, the repetitive pattern creates a meditational state for your mind. Assignment due Wednesday 23/1

Some ideas:

Want to join in?

You can join in our weekly art journalling group whenever you feel like it! Just start journalling and send your picture of the last assignment by Wednesday of the next week. 
The goal of this group isn't to show off our work, it's to get a consistent creative outlet in our lives. There are no age limits in our art group, so you can get messy with the kids!
