Patterns and colour is what makes this ‘cool cat’ stand-out. What I love most about this is the simple materials required. This artwork is easily adaptable to younger learners simply but taking out the intricate patterning and just colour blocking the spaces. Zentangles are structured drawing patterns in small sections. They can be easy or very detailed. There are many zentangle pattern ideas for inspiration available online as well.
This project can be done in stages and doesn’t have to be completed in one sitting. Zentangles can take a lot of time, so encourage your children to have a break, and then resume it at a later time. If you don’t’ have coloured paper to mount your work, keep it on your white sheet, and colour in your background with crayon or coloured pencil.
- White paper
