I'm Done! Now What?
To follow up our Mandalas, I asked the students to make a radially symmetrical magazine collage. I encouraged them to choose two or more pages from magazines based on color and to try to pick out pages with high contrast from one another. They cut their pages up snowflake style (the ol' fold and cut method) and saved all of their pieces. They then set about the task of collaging their favorite pieces together to create a colorful, radially symmetrical design. I let them choose their background color and we glued them down (onto construction paper).
