Meditation Buddies

This past few weeks in my Meditation and Art for Kids class at the Realm Creative Academy here in Santa Monica, we made meditation buddies so kids could have a pal to meditate with at home!

We created sketches of what their buddies would look like. They chose to make dogs. They sketched them out first.

Then we created the figures out of newspaper and tape.

Then we covered the newspaper with Rigid Wrap strips.

The final pieces were painted. Using acrylic paints.

One student created a meditation cushion for their buddy too.
