Thesis Mandala

This August, I began my thesis project, which is semester 2 of 3 for the thesis series in my MA-MFT art therapy psychology program.

I began to tally my hours spent writing each week. Each chapter is coded by color to represent my thesis experience. It shows the hours spent writing Chapters 1, 2, 3, and my IRB proposal. Upon completion of my research study, I will add a visual representation of Chapters 4, 5, and my time spent gathering data with participants. So far, I have not documented any class time, but may choose to include it in the margins of the paper when I am done.

The mandala is currently about 18” in diameter and uses paper, tissue paper, and marker on Arches watercolor paper.
