Zentangle Project


Zentangles are “purposeful doodles” and utilize repetition of line and shapes
and a variety of thickness and sizes. Because of the amount of details and
concentration Zentangles require, they are said to put the artist into a state
of Zen or meditation.

1. Students will either:
A. Create a silhouette/detailed drawing of a subject of their choice
B. Write a quote/verse from song lyrics

2. Students will create a unique Zentangle design either in the background of the image,
inside their chosen subject, or integrated in both.

Check out Tanglepatterns.com or browse images of “Zentangles” for different ideas of patterns.
*Remember you can invent your own patterns
Assessment: Repetition of lines and shapes, variety of sizes and thicknesses of lines,
the detail and quality of the work, and at least one original pattern creation. This project will be worth 50 points.

Media: Fine and Extra Fine Sharpies
