UPDATE! Zentangle Initials

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Using line designs and letter samples my students created 4-6 practice Zentangle designs. I searched YouTube and showed them examples of different Zentangle designs being created. I also demonstrated more slowly and gave the example sheets of Zentangle designs that I found on Pinterest. See my Pinterest Zentangle board here.

They also practiced creating the 2-3 initials of their choice. We penciled in the letter onto a 10" x 10" piece of drawing paper and then began breaking up the negative space around our letter. Last, but not least, we filled in the spaces around our letter with Zentangles. We talked about ensuring that the letter maintained dominance in our designs. Great for teaching Line and Repetition.

I think they turned out great! What do you think?

Update! Here is the lesson. It took me a year to put together and I think it is great! The students loved it and their work came out amazing.
