Middle Eastern Inspired Art

I had the opportunity to teach middle school students this spring a handful of middle eastern inspired art projects.  After they learned about radial design, I taught them how to make mandalas.  They were asked to trust their creativity and just create.  All of the students were successful and most were surprised at what wonderful mandalas they created.

Once they completed their mandalas, the students glued them onto a recycled notebook that they each made.

    The second project the students completed was an Islamic inspired name tile. 

Finally, the students used old CD's to create mandala spinning tops.
