Zen Doodles –

Zen Doodle assignments – 1. Students will practice on a copy paper with about 6 tiles to start.  2. Students will then generate 12 practice zen doodle tiles approximately 1.5 inches on a single piece of sketchbook paper. 3. Students will then take a piece of blank copy paper – draw a line about 1 inch from the sides and about halfway up the portrait side of the page, students will then generate a design that fills at least 50% of the page and has a shape completely zen doodled in.

~ Zen Doodling – Zentangle is a copyrighted process with a specific theory  behind the method. – We will be doodling in a meditative style that references Zentangle but is not in fact the method.
