This package is inspired by the Zentangle method of pattern drawing. This project reinforces many principles and elements of design such as line, shape, value, contrast, rhythm, repetition and variety. This package works well with my Elements and Principles of Design handouts that can be downloaded for free from my store!
• Students will create a unique and personal tangle drawing after developing and practicing patterns on provided worksheets.
• Students will demonstrate their knowledge of the elements and principles of design through the creation of patterns and a planned framework.
Included in this 11 page package:
A detailed lesson plan that can be copied and given to students for step-by-step instructions.
A marking/requirements checklist
Project extension ideas
One design/framework brainstorm worksheet
Three pattern practice worksheets with pattern breakdown
One general pattern practice worksheet
Three pages of examples for teaching aids.
I give my students one class to complete the worksheets and 2-4 classes to complete their finished drawings depending on how large and intricate their works are. In the higher grades I encourage them to shade, add a color scheme and research patterns from cultures around the world.
Thanks for taking a look!
