What is a mandala?


Mandala is Sanskrit for “circle,” however, mandala art can take any symmetrical shape. In Buddhism the creation process is connected to meditation. Painting and colouring mandalas is a process that invites you to think, relax and be creative.Beige Aesthetic Flower Photo Collage Img 7625 Scaled Img 7634 Scaled

While working on our mandala art, we played music and had great conversations on the topics of painting, colours, weekend adventures, living abroad, good food and more.

Time flew by as we enjoyed the process of creating stone mandala art and inadvertently practised our English skills.

When discussing art, the emphasis is taken off of accuracy and put onto fluency, expressing thoughts and ideas. For this reason, it can be great for students impeded by a fear of making mistakes.
