“With a truly open mind, you make discoveries because you are open and aware.” ~Kyna Leski
You never know what you’ll find until you start your search.
Artist, Avis Turner sent us the photograph above. When she was out walking with her dog on the beach in Rockland she came upon this marvelous mandala.
A mandala is a symbol that represents the universe. The circular design says that everything is connected.
Have you seen a work of art created from nature for others to enjoy?
Might you make one for people on walks to discover?
We have two Big Ideas for kids this week from our artists. The first one is from Susan Beebe.
Day 4 On the Lookout
Mindset: Be an observer. An explorer. A scientist.
On this sunny day we’ve planned a Scavenger Hunt with ideas from LEAPS’ artist, Susan Beebe.
