What 8 year old doesn't love to doodle? I think the term Zentangle is relatively new because it's pretty similar to what comes naturally to expert doodlers... lol... but I digress... as usual. Today we looked at using repetitive patterns and lines to create balance and beauty. They were tasked to fill an animal of their choosing with a bunch of zentangle patterns.
The finished animals were then cut out and mounted on coloured 'frames'.
The colours chosen would have to fit into one of our predefined colour schemes though... we discussed how analogous (colours next to each other on the colour wheel) and complementary (colours opposite to each other on the colour wheel) can make the viewer feel differently about a picture. Take a look at these beauties!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
