Studio Art: Zentangle
Today in Studio Art we will learn the basic of the Zentangle drawing technique which mixes different patterns of doodles together for greater effect. Below is a short tutorial about the basics. Today we'll begin working with some simple patterns in creating a nameplate that we will finish tomorrow.
This is a technique that can be simple or as you build layers turn complex based upon your design, skill, and precision. Below is an example of a more advanced Zentangle within a simple design. The use of patterns that suggest 3 dimensions adds a complexity. We will experiment with some different patters, use of color, and designs in class and later working on our peace poster designs next week.
Here's a great Zentangle design to begin with that we will follow which uses a simple square inside a square with a circle interior. The shapes and technique are pretty simple but together form a complex design which gives a good example of how the process works.
