Tibetan mandala design

Tibetan Mandala Design

  • The Tibetan mandala is a tool for gaining wisdom and compassion and generally is depicted as a tightly balanced, geometric composition wherein deities reside.

  • The principal deity is housed in the center.

  • The mandala serves as a tool for guiding individuals along the path to enlightenment.

  • Monks meditate upon the mandala, imagining it as a three-dimensional palace.

  • The deities who reside in the palace embody philosophical views and serve as role models.

  • The mandala's purpose is to help transform ordinary minds into enlightened ones.


Objectives

Objectives

  • Become aware of Radial design in art through examples of Rose windows and mandala designs from various cultures

  • Understand math concepts as they relate to art

  • Create a radial design inspired from nature-looking closely at insect, plants and/or flowers

  • Show awareness of color planning in selection of colors


Materials

Materials

  • Compasses or circle templates

  • Pencils

  • Erasers

  • Scissors

  • Markers and or colored pencils

  • 12” square white drawing paper


Art terms math vocabulary

Art terms/Math vocabulary

  • Reflection- mirror image of a figure

  • Radial balance- elements that radiate out in a circular pattern from a center point

  • Line of symmetry- the symmetry that a figure has if it can be divided by a line into two parts that are mirror images.

  • Point of symmetry- rotational symmetry of 180 degrees.

  • Perpendicular- Two lines/planes that intersect a right angles

  • Diameter- a line segment that passes through the center of a circle and has its two endpoints on the circle

  • Radius- the distance from the center of a circle to any point on its circumference


Procedures

Procedures

  • Trace circle template onto 12” square paper. Neatly cut out circle.

  • Fold the circle in half, then in quarters, then in eighths. Crease.

  • Unfold and draw on only one of the “pie slices”

  • The drawing needs to be complex and should touch the edge of the pie slice at least 3 times.

  • Once the pie drawing is completed, the slice is folded inward and then the back of the paper is rubbed with a smooth hard tool to transfer the drawing to the adjacent pie slice.

  • Outline on the adjacent pie shape- this ¼ of the circle is folded in and transferred to the next quarter.

  • Fold over to transfer to the other half of the circle.

  • Select a color plan and color using markers and/or colored pencils.


Evaluation

Evaluation

  • Did you exhibit radial balance in completing a design inspired by nature?

  • Did you exhibit craftsmanship in coloring your design with colored pencils and/or markers?
