Create Beautiful Mandalas

The word mandala comes from the ancient Sanskrit language and loosely means “circle” or “center.” The mandala is a circular matrix with a center point—a point from which all things are possible. It is believed that within its circular shape, the mandala has the power to promote relaxation, balance the body’s energies, enhance your creativity, and support healing.

Here is a step by step guide to to create beautiful mandalas that have a sense of symmetry and balance.

Materials used:

Step 1: Draw concentric circles using a compassmandala2

Step 2: Draw the angular guidelines – divide 360° by the number of sections to determine how big to draw each section.
For example: 360°/12=30°. Use a protractor & pencil to mark your circle in 30° increments: 30°, 60°, 90°,… and then use a ruler to connect the marks.mandala4

Step 3: Begin your design – repeat the pattern around the entire circle. Consider different shapes, symbols, and colors. mandala3.jpg

Step 4:  Erase all of the pencil marks and color the mandala.mandala6
