‘Mandala Art’ is a 4-page resource (pictured above) which asks your students to create a research page on mandalas and then create a mandala out of objects. Two good examples are included, one made from leaves and one made from cutlery. The download also suggested using toys such as lego or meccano. Good advice about how to achieve a good shape and tips on photographing are also included in the resource. This is an ideal home learning resource and great for teaching about symmetry.
There are more home learning resources on The Arty Teacher.
There is a useful introductory video about mandala art here that you could use in conjunction with this resource. You could choose to make connections with the artists/sculptor Andy Goldsworthy using this resource.

I set up The Arty Teacher because I have a passion for my subject that I want to share with other art teachers around the world.
I have been a high school art teacher for over 20 years, so I understand what it’s like to be in front of a class of students, often with very different abilities and attitudes.
I wanted to develop resources that would help teachers to bring out the best in every student in every class. I also wanted to free-up staff from time-consuming lesson preparation to let them focus instead on delivering exciting, motivating, dynamic lessons, supported by excellent resources.
