To make one of your own:
1. Draw a very simple drawing.
2. Use a ruler to draw straight lines through the design like a checkerboard.
3. Start in a corner edge and color in every other shape with one color of marker. Make sure to alternate the shapes within the checkerboard.

I just started this project with my 5th graders, and can't wait to see their designs unfold! We are looking at traditional designs from Mendhi, as well as Zentangle. Zentangle is a new idea in art where black and white designs are built upon as the artist gets deeper into the drawing. There is no planning, or mistakes. The idea is to fill up their space with unique doodles.
I can't wait to share their designs in a few weeks!

The Second graders in Mrs. Polson's class reviewed the color wheel by reading "Mouse Paint" by Ellen Stoll Walsh. The story tells the reader about mice that find jars of paint, and fill up a paper. The students used their imaginations to create what they thought the primary color paintings look like.
