Our second project for the 6th-8th grade students was complex zen tangles.
Students could choose to trace around circles using overlap to make a design
or they could make a random tangle shape
or they could use a known shape (such as a heart) and make a tangle inside that
Each work of art had to include 10 different patterns and be inked in with sharpie. We got a lot of really striking works of art with only paper, pencil and pen.
