Zentangle Art

      Zentangles are miniature pieces of unplanned, abstract, black and white art created through a very specific Method from an ensemble of simple, structured patterns called tangles on a 3.5-inch (89 mm) square paper tile. Zentangles are not only exquisitely beautiful, they are fun and relaxing to create.(

    After a day of practicing zentangle patterns, students were asked to create either a landscape or an animal.

Paul Klee

      Paul Klee (18 December 1879 – 29 June 1940) was a Swiss-German painter. His highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism. Klee was a natural draftsman who experimented with and eventually deeply explored color theory, writing about it extensively (...) He and his colleague, Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky, both taught at the Bauhaus school of art, design and architecture. His works reflect his dry humor and his sometimes childlike perspective, his personal moods and beliefs, and his musicality. (Wikipedia)

      We will work with basic shapes and colours as Paul Klee did.
  1. Draw and cut out a basic shape in different sizes.
  2. Paint with tempera both sides of the shape.
  3. Glue them and put a string.
  4. Decorate the class with all of them.
These are the students' artworks. They look nicer when hunged from the ceiling.
