Creating Zentangles

Today in Art we used a special drawing technique called Zentangles. Inspired by a series of artworks and meditative music, we used black fine liners on white card to create these beautiful, abstract artworks.
It was a very peaceful lesson and the creativity and designs were quite diverse.

Zentangles are miniature pieces of abstract, black and white art created through simple, structured patterns called tangles.
Zentangles are not only beautiful, they are fun and relaxing to create.
The process of creating a Zentangle is a form of “artistic meditation” as you become engrossed in making each pattern. Students let their imagination take over. The pattern combinations are endless. 
The Zentangle method increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being.
Zentangle is simply wonderful patterns working harmoniously together.

    I always hate missing Art day and I did when I was a student, too! I was so excited when I saw Mrs G’s post as I was wondering at my meeting how your Zentangles were going! They are outstanding. I love the meditative approach as well. I can’t wait to see mine tomorrow!!
