To introduce us to radial design we did a postit note challenge. Students had 6 minutes to create a radial design using only postit notes. From this we worked out the best method to create symmetry in a radial design. We then applied this to create our mandala designs.
We create our mandala designs and then added tints, tones and shades using a black, white and grey pencil crayon.
Pupils should be taught to develop their creativity and ideas, and increase proficiency in their execution. They should develop a critical understanding of artists, architects and designers, expressing reasoned judgements that can inform their own work.
