A cooperative mandala

A cooperative mandala - student project

I made this mandala with my eleven year old son. We took turns adding a repeating line or element. It was really interesting to see how his mind works and the fact that I didn't have complete control over the result helped me to relax my expectations. We decided to leave it black and white so that he can print out photocopies of it to color whenever he wants.

After creating the mandala together, we decided to hide it in his grandparents' apartment so that they will have a lovely surprise to discover someday.
