︎ Natural Mandala’s


Make temporary mandala sculptures using natural resources, we think it’s an incredibly relaxing and a quick activity too!


Instructions:

  1. Collect natural materials of different shapes, sizes and colours e.g. pebbles, leaves, flower petals
  2. Find a sheltered spot outdoors to make your artwork. -  If you are at Milton Keynes University Hospital you find a quiet spot and some materials in one of the Creative Courtyards. 
  3. Sort your materials into shapes, sizes, textures and colours etc.
  4. Pick a natural object as the centre of your circle
  5. Create an inner circle with objects of a similar theme
  6. Continuing in themes work your way outwards expanding your circle until you are finished
  7. Take a photograph as a memento of your artwork
  8. Have another go and experiment with different patterns
