Zentangle Pumpkins


Fifth and sixth graders created these Zentangle pumpkins.  First, we did a lesson on zentangling, and students practiced making at least ten different Zentangle designs with fine point black sharpies. Second, I gave them another lesson drawing pumpkins with sections, which they practiced also.  They drew their best pumpkin on 9 x 12 watercolor paper, and then painted it with watercolors, mixing yellow and red.  Once dry, they created different zentangle designs in each pumpkin section (including the stem) with the fine point black sharpies.  These were cut out and adhered to black background paper using zots to help them pop off the page.  Leaves were drawn and cut from green patterned paper, and the vines were created with rick rack. Leaves and vines were adhered with Elmers glue.Zentangle Pumpkins Gr 5-6 001 Zentangle Pumpkins Gr 5-6 002 Zentangle Pumpkins Gr 5-6 003 Zentangle Pumpkins Gr 5-6 004
