We continued our study of Gandhi in art and humanities this week. The students finished the designs on their elephants and began working on their symmetrical designs for a sand mandala. They began by tracing a large circle on black paper, outlining the circle with glue and sprinkling colored sand on top of the glue. The next step was to begin their design work. Drawing with glue requires hand strength, control of the material and planning of the design. The art room was a mess, but the results are always worth it! The art work is hanging up in the MPP hallways if you have a chance to come into school to see them.
