Zentangle Fun!

My students need Zentangle pens to create amazing pieces of artwork!

My Students

Every student is an artist. Did you have an art class in school, or maybe a teacher that shared their passion for a world full of color? All of my students thrive in the opportunity to express their creativity in new and unique ways.

My students are 4th, 5th and 6th grade gifted and talented kids.

Each week students from six different elementary schools come together in a common location to explore creativity and critical thinking. During their weekly meeting they enjoy doing team challenges, fun art projects, advanced academic work and independent study projects. We focus on Strengthening Talents, Reasoning, and Intellect through Varied Experiences. The students in my program S.T.R.I.V.E to learn about the world around them and express their understanding of it in creative ways.

My Project

Having a supply of Zentangle pens will help my students create unique pieces of art, while also increasing focus and creative thought. Creating Zentangles is intuitive for students who are naturally able to follow patterns. It also is fun and relaxing, and for some students is a great way to help settle their mind. It has the ability to be done anywhere with very few resources, and also gives students a sense of success in the artistic field. Getting these materials will help allow many students to create and share their work, not simply within my classroom, but in other classes I visit throughout the school year.

This project is so important to me because I truly value art education.

In teaching students Zentangles previously, I have found that those who have no confidence in art begin to see success. This helps shift their mindset into a place where they are willing to try, to make mistakes, and take risks in the art field that they weren't always ready to do before due to fear of failure.
