February 22, I was invited to my granddaughter, Elle's, 3rd grade class at Holmes Elementary School in San Diego, California. Elle's teacher, Mr. Blasé, asked me to come and teach
Zentangle Art Method. I love to share this art method to the kids.
From the moment you tell the kids NO ART EXPERIENCE NECESSARY and NO MISTAKES, they are all on board to learn this amazing method.
Watching 24 little faces learn about the history, the string, the "tangles" and ease of this art method, to the second "tile" applying the patterns we learned to bring to life MR. ROBOT, made my day.
Our first tile was typical, corner dot, border, string, add some tangles (that is what we call the patterns) and whalah..... an abstract piece of art.
Here is the picture of the kids second tile -bringing to life Mr. Robot with the patterns we learn in our first tile.
Since I couldn't take a picture of the kids happy smiles without their parents consent, we did next best thing... took a picture of them holding up their art work. Oh, by the way, Elle's beautiful little face is front and center.
I did get 24 thumbs up (or is it 48?) for Zentangle class today. Thank you Holmes Elementary and Mr. Blasé for opening up your school for me today.
When will your classroom get to learn Zentangle? Email me and I'll tell you how: firstname.lastname@example.org.
