Zany Zentangle Zoo
Today my class at the San Diego Zoo was with 6th, 7th and 8th graders. I introduced Zentangle Art Method and our project was to creating a coloring book page by adding "tangles" (Zentangle terminology for patterns). Doesn't the 'after' peacock look much more interesting than the 'before' version? I always tell the kids, if you can draw a circle and a straight line... you can tangle.
I didn't get all 40 students art pieces in pic, but didn't they do a fantastic job?
Gee whiz FYI: Did you know that lots of animals at the Zoo have a companion? The two are raised from babies and spend their lives together. Next time you go to the San Diego Zoo, see if you can find the animals with companions.
