Amazing Abstract Animals for Ages 7-10 taught by Terri Colamatteo

April 28 @ 2:00 pm 3:30 pm

$24.00 Includes supplies for shared use in class

Doodle a Poodle, Calico a Cat, Filigree a Fish, Zentangle a Zebra!

Explore abstract art through line, shape and patterns using Zentangle*. Have fun “doodling” the patterns. Be creative and make up your own!  *Zentangles are a fun and easy way to create magical patterns.

We will be using the patterns you choose to in a drawing of your favorite animal. We will be practicing drawing the animal with tracing paper and pencils so no need to worry! 

Our final drawing will be colored with Posca markers or watercolors. You choose!

Please bring a black and white photo copy of your favorite animal. The animal’s face and shoulders should fill the page. The image should be just of the animal and not a background.

“Remember, ART is about your own Awesomeness, Respect for yourself, and Trying something new.”
