I teach a course at the University of Regina in which students learn how to use visual art, dance, drama, movement, voice and play with children in the classroom.  I introduced  Zentangle last week as part of a process exercise in which they explored movement of line. We started with string.
First in groups they wrapped string around themselves to become a human string art piece. Next they cut the string into smaller pieces and they each created a string line drawing on a sheet of paper.
Lastly, they did a Zentangle drawing on a 4" by 4" piece of paper. Zentangle drawings are small ink and or pencil doodles that are relaxing and fun to make. I use them in my Art Therapy practice for clients who want to have a creative way to relax and focus.

Snow Play

The kids who come to see me for Art Therapy decided that they were tired of all the white snow. So we changed it.
