Art Class: Zentangle Balloons

IMG_1800

Our Zentangle Balloons were so fun to make!

If you don’t know what a Zentangle is then click here.

I had the kids use some practice worksheets from my Zentangle 1 book.  Which got them going in the right direction.  The key to this activity is to get the kids used to the idea of filling the space.  Connect your lines! Use light and dark space!  Leave no large spaces!  The results were so great and so unique to each balloon!

To top it all off I took picture of the kids pretending to hold the string of a balloon so that we could do an “up and away” presentation. ( I have lost the inspiration link, sorry!)

It’s great to see how many artists we have in our afterschool program.  I can’t wait to keep creating with them.  This February we will be working on drama!
