This is the most simple, yet time consuming form of art my kids have learned so far.
Our fourth son always draws incredibly detailed pictures with pen. He will sit there for hours adding dots, lines and squiggles to a picture and in the end produces the most beautiful drawings.
This week I introduced him to the “formal form” of his natural style of artistic expression… The zentangle.
I found an easy tutorial on Tiny Rotten Peanuts. I know. The name is funny, but the instructions are great.
Here is our son’s first zentangle!
This style of art is perfect for kids who get tunnel vision while doing a project, have a love for detail, or have incredible patience and concentration (or who need to practice!).
