This free zentangle-inspired kids drawing activity has been inspired by zentangles. “Zentangles are drawings composed of patterns (tangles) that can be viewed from all four sides. Zentangles do not contain recognizable objects and there is no “right side up”. The Zentangle method is very focused and mindful.”
This activity is suitable for children ages 8+
This downloadable, printable book has been designed for everyone who loves to draw and tangle. Twelve Aussie animals to tangle!
This book is for all ages and skill levels. It goes back to basics for younger children but also caters for more advanced artists and adults too, allowing everyone to work at their own level and continue to improve. Teachers you could even tangle an animal along with your students.
Includes an introduction to zentangling, equipment and materials required, tips and techniques, drawing patterns, finding inspiration from patterns in nature with practice pages and plenty of examples.
After an initial, introductory step-by-step example of tangling the butterfly template, you are then ready to enjoy tangling all of the 12 Aussie animal templates.
Each template includes a finished tangled example, the patterns included, educational facts about the animals and a photograph of the animal for reference.
This would make a fantastic art resource for students of all ages and due to the repetitive pattern making it is known to be calming and relaxing too. Perhaps even playing some soothing music too and enjoy some peace and quiet in the classroom for a change!
