We had done several cityscapes earlier so we did pattern filled landscapes. We talked about the different stuff we would see in a landscape instead of a cityscape. They drew a simple landscape and filled it with patterns (yes I was inspired by all the zentangle drawings I have been seeing). Some left them white...
and some choose to add color using chalk pastels.
and one class only got to see me once... so we snitched the NAEA Zentangle booth demo directions from Sylvia at Artsmudge. On the board I showed them what a ladybug, aurora, shell and pick-up stick drawing would look like. Then I read them the directions and they each created something unique.
I think (but who knows) next week will be back to "normal."
This week has been beautiful around here... hope spring is starting to spring around all of you. I know the beautiful colors my kiddos used today have me thinking spring!
