Our 4th and 5th grade artists created Zentangle Leaf compositions. First, they learned about the zentangle method; easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. After students practiced a variety of zentangle patterns, they collected leaves outside that had fallen from the trees. Following the collection, artists traced the leaves, using overlapping techniques to create new shapes. Next, our artists created a variety of patterns inside each shape using a permanent marker, and finally, added a watercolor background.
