Zentangles, the word says it all...to ZEN. Students learned about the therapeutic art form of the Zentangle that combines line design, shape and pattern. Design Element Form was introduced as well to create the familiar pumpkin. Using oil pastels students learned how to properly blend oil pastels to create an illusion of three dimension.
These stunning Silhouette trees started and ended just in time with the season change. Students learned about this affordable way in the 18th century to get a "photograph" taken of oneself but instead of a side profile students invented their own tree. Using rulers to the half inch a grid was formed. Students either chose a sun or a moon to depict and learned about what truly a warm versus a cool color means, which has everything to do with saturation.
