ART - The Science of Art - Let's do a social experiment

What do you prefer - repeated patterns or free flowing designs? Let's experiment, create and make some discoveries in art. This activity should take you around 45 minutes to complete. You will create and compare 2 different types of Zentangle Designs and decide what style you prefer. This is a social sciences experiment. Upload a photo of your designs on Page 1 (see ), complete the reflection on Page 2. An example is on Page 3. RESEARCH QUESTION: Do students find it more calming to create geometric or organic zentangle designs? HYPOTHESIS: More students prefer geometric designs because they are repetitive and predictable making them easier to draw, creating a more calming effect. (Do you agree?) VARIABLES: Choice of drawing materials, line, shape, space and colour to complete zentangle design. MATERIALS: Paper, drawing tools, ruler PROCEDURE: (see video and examples in activity response template). Repeat the experiment - draw at least 2 geometric zentangles & 2 organic zentangle designs as shown in the SAFETY: Becoming so relaxed you fall asleep while drawing and bang your head on the table! RESULTS: Complete this survey when your zentangles are done https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=BdJKHR72TECcWoDCjnisOJZPGXwI6vZFgeA3cpjcJoRUOUkzQ1cxVlFGTDJGTFdHR01MQ1ZEMkM0TC4u CONCLUSION: Results of survey will be shared next week for you to draw on for your conclusions.
