I have had a great start to the new school year and I think I owe my friends from Paint Party Friday a big thanks for inspiring me and helping to keep me motivated to be creative!
After all the necessary paperwork, rules and procedures are behind us I had my students begin by drawing themselves as a cartoon. They are adorable and I will share them when I get an okay from my students.
Zentangles have been all the rage in my room. Not only in my room but my co-teachers in art are using them also. The kids are loving them.
A third year student stayed after school today just to talk to me about how excited she was over Zentangles! And she is not even my student but has visited with me every day.
The photos are of my in-class demonstrations I completed for my students. We are using heavy paper cut to about a small postcard .
|Tuesday: Instructed to use 2 Zentangle designs|
|Wednesday:Instructed to use 3 Zentangle designs, repeat Tuesdays plus one.|
|Thursday: Instructed to use four Zentangle designs. Previously used|
Tomorrow we will be doing Fun Friday and completing Splotch monsters!
(In case you are wondering what is a Splotch monster: A Splotch monster is a creative creature created from a random splotch of paint.)
Here are my demonstration pieces.
I am not sure who are having more fun... the kids or me!

Thanks, again to my friends at Paint Party Friday!
