Zentangle dragonflies

Today another one of our fabulous art masterpiece moms , Laura Bynum, is sharing a project she did with her 2nd grade class. Laura is also an artist too! Check out her blog

Laura had her class do Zentangle Dragonflies and they turned out great. What is Zentangle? A Zentangle is an abstract drawing created using repetitive patterns. So pretty great project ideas for kids of all ages.

She used water colors , water color paper, pencils, zentangle example sheets, thin sharpies and brushes.
Laura showed them a couple examples after she told them what a Zentangle was.

The kids jumped right in drawing their dragonflies and creating the Zentangle designs.

After they got their designs down they painted them with a little watercolor.
Here's some masterpieces!

Here's some helpful links that she used

Here's a great one on how to draw a simple dragonfly.

Enjoy! Let me know how it turns out!
