Autumn leaves mandala

You need:
  1. white drawing sheet A4 size
  2. compasses
  3. pencil
  4. oil pastels
Draw a circle with a diameter of 20 cm. Draw within about 1 cm another circle (the edge of the mandala). Cut out and fold into 8 pieces. Draw against one of the folds half of an autumn leaf using black oil pastel.

Fold the sheet and press firmly with the hands to get a print of the leaf on the other side of the fold. Trace this half with black oilpastel. Repeat this and draw the other three leaves. Colour the leaves and background with oil pastels in warm colours. Colour the edge with a nice pattern.

  1. beautiful - a fresh look at "autumn leaf" art!

  2. Gorgeous! What a great idea thanks for sharing!

  3. Your example looks spooky similar to a drawing sitting on my desk at school! I don't know a ton about mandalas but decided to research some last week. I thought about doing one about the seasons or nature but decided to save the mandala idea for January. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Oooh! This looks great! I like to incorporate leaves into fall projects and this really seems to be something the kids will like! Thanks!
