Drawing zentangles can be fun, enjoyable, or boring. It really depends upon the student. Most like it and it gives us a loose format and form to create with. I also get to rehash and introduce all kinds of design terms that I’d like them to remember.
A nice easy, step by step zentangle approach
Over the past few months I’ve had students draw various parts of their house with a focus being on the kitchen. We started with taking measurements and drawing floor plans, then drawing some of the appliances and details particular to their kitchen. This was done while at school we worked on making and drawing various geometric solids. The idea being that learning to draw the solids would make the proper drawing of the kitchen successful.
Trinity did a nice job with her kitchen.
Megan did very well with this shot from above.
All of the pieces look better in real life. I still have trouble getting a good picture of a black and whit line drawing. I need to learn a bit more about photo editing.
I figure I’d better start separating the grades so the students could find their own work a bit easier.
The one and only Riley did a great set of geometric solids. Wonderful to see!
The two above are examples done by Ms. Anna, AKA Margie. She always does a great job!
Tyler did a great job on his geometric solids project. Your hard work paid off with good results!
A great arrangement of the assignment.
Good shading, drawing, and close to finishing.
This student, whom I’ll call Ms. R refuses to let me take her picture, and yet she does nice work when she wants to.
