Illuminate – The Buddha

Share with
Google Classroom
A black and white illustration of Buddha sitting crossed-legged in a large lotus flower. His eyes are closed, one arm is resting in his lap and the other is raised. There is a circular aura around his head.


The word illuminate has three definitions:

  1. light up or brighten
  2. decorate or adorn
  3. clarify or reveal

The objective for this coloring activity is not simply for the student to color the work of art, but to illuminate it!


Today, some may see the Buddha as a prince from Nepal, a philosopher, a teacher, a social reformer, an activist, as a superhuman, or even a god! But one thing we know for sure is that out of his great compassion he gave up everything and that changed the world forever. He also does cool stuff like meditate on top of a lotus flower.
