I teach once a month at the Capricorn Community House in Yanchep. This Saturday I had a polymer clay class in the morning and drawing zentangles in the afternoon.
The polymer clay class was an adaptation of a well known and published technique called torn paper. Thin layers of coloured polymer sheets are literally torn and placed on a background, simple eh? Maggi Maggio describes this in her water colour tutorial here (Click on link). As some of my students are new to working with polymer clay, I adapted the method to suit the students, who did a fantastic job with their beads.
The afternoon session was all about drawing patterns. Patterns that are repeatedly drawn in a rhythm. The drawing of patterns in this way is called Zentangling. A Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns as described on the Zentangle website. Anyone can do it, its easy and fun to do.
