“There is nothing so wise as a circle.” Rainer Maria Rilke

Take a moment to think about what each of these types of circles means to you.

  • What else can you do with circles other than draw or paint them?
  • Circle words or objects with markers, pens, crayons, paint
  • Cut out circles of different sizes, colors, textures
  • Use circle objects to create stamps
  • Frame words and objects with a circle cut out

“I live my life in widening circles That reach out across the world.”

Rainer Maria Rilke, Rilke’s Book of Hours: Love Poems to God
