Wow, I haven't posted in a while! This year, in addition to stepping through art history periods, we are working on singling out elements of art to focus on. The first one covered was the element of LINE. So, to practice using line effectively, we worked on the art of zentangle. It is so easy to do, yet so fun, and all the projects end up looking really neat. 5-6 did JUST the butterfly, but 7-8 added the element of zentangling some flowers as well, to practice how to divide an item to be zentangled. Enjoy the sampling below.
