This week we are going to create zentangles. Zentangles is a technique to create unplanned, abstract art structured around simple repeated patterns called tangles. Calmness, called zen, is how this technique of art makes us feel. Day 1: 1. Go to the templates and watch the first video on directions on how to start your zentangle thumbnails. This will walk you through the first steps for making the 9 box thumbnails. 2. Once your 9 thumbnails are done, go to the second template to watch video two on your next steps. Be sure to click on the link to check out some inspiration. 3. Zentangle 3 of your squares. Day 2: 1. Zentangle 3 of your squares. Day 3: 1. Finish the last 3 of your squares. Now your whole page is filled, and you will upload a photo of your zentangles on the 4th template. Click on add Click on photo Click on check to turn in your work.
