Zentangles - a fun, creative way to use Line in artworks!
I'm sure that you have all heard about Zentangles. These doodles on steroids have been an increasing craze over the past few years. Today at the bookstore in our mall I even saw adult coloring books with Zentangle-like designs to color. If you want to learn more about the origins of the Zentangle have a gander at https://www.zentangle.com/ .
I will admit that I don't necessarily follow the "rules" of the Zentangle that the website above instructs. I am more inspired by the idea of the Zentangle and go from there. I will tell you that if you get your students started on this art form expect to have them engrossed and on-task for a good amount of time.
Have you tried to incorporate Zentangles in your classroom?
