In this project students created a patterned drawing while drawing from observation. I set up various small still lifes in the room and students were given a choice on where and what to draw. After students finished drawing they added hue, tint and shade with colored pencils. They finished their drawing by creating patterns (AKA zentangles) with black marker for their backgrounds.
Some of the
students had never drawn from a still life before, the results were
great! I cannot stress enough how awesome these Zentangle Still Life
Drawings turned out. They are MESMERIZING!
