Title: Tree of Harmony
Medium: Pen & Ink on Archival Paper
Size: 18 x 24
Inspiration: Zen Kandinsky Tree by artist, Danielle Vayda.
Method: The Zentangle method is a relaxing, fun way to create beautiful images by drawing a series of structured patterns. This method increases focus, allowing creative expression without rules. Once they mastered the technique, the children worked collectively to fill the interior form of a tree with intricate ink designs. They were so enthralled with the process, they didn’t want to stop!
