The Zentangle Drawing Project will be a process for students to learn how to draw effectively, process composition, line, and shape to create a contour drawing filled with designs and patterns. This project is a way to have students reflect, explore, and persist. The class will focus on mindfulness to connect to its purpose of practice.
