May 9, 2015 
@ Davie High school
annual 'Ashley for the arts' festival 
1 pm ~ 5 pm (Free admission)
students performed and exhibited art 
concessions and local artists

Our 6th ~ 8th grade students presented information to our community about mandalas.  they discussed the cultural significance of the mandala and the ways in which people collectively create these beautiful works in an effort to benefit one's self and others.  guests at the festival had an opportunity to participate in a community mandala.  in the similar respect that these wonderful creations are manifested in the eastern world, we asked our festival guests to think of a positive intention and hopeful wishes as they worked on the mandala.  there were several mandalas created with sand.  the mandala is very reflective of a woven tapestry.  the vivid colors and patterns are 'woven' into the design by each individual participating.  each mandala reflected our unified efforts to contribute to a creative and enriching artistic experience.  




Mandala Class Study.
