This week I led a Children's Spring Break Art Camp. Together the kids and I explore the use of Mandalas as not only a way to make pretty pictures, but a way to organize and develop ideas. Using a divided circle the students brainstormed the staged development of their super hero story. The kids adopted the technique with surprising ease. I also demonstrated how such mandala 'mind mapping' can be use to plan one's day or goals-- as opposed to a traditional, linear 'To Do List'.
