Summer Reading
Planting the Seeds of Peace
A Summer Reading Program This workshop combines art making and collected words to create a mandala mobile. Mandalas are ancient symbols of unity and peace. Mandalas are found all around us in art, architecture and nature. The act of creating or coloring a mandala quiets the mind and strengthens concentration. Materials used include paper, yarn, glue and colored pencils. Each child will create their own single mandala to take home. Best for ages 8 to 12 year olds. Presented by Miss Navida
