Our Mindfulness Mandala Mural
In the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, it is important to take time to be calm and focus on the moment. At Lu Sutton, we are learning to be mindful. Following the reading of I Am Peace: A Book of Mindfulness, written by Susan Verde and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds ( author of The Dot, the inspiration for our Dot Mural), every student at Lu Sutton created a four inch circle depicting their idea of something peaceful. The circles were arranged around a painting of a dove, a symbol of peace. The mural was inspired by the concept of a mandala. This is our third collectivist (whole school) mural integrating language arts, socio-emotional learning and art appreciation.
