Zentangle Project Pack No. 17 Videos
A kaleidoscope is an instrument that has tiny pieces of glass or plastic encased between flat pieces of clear glass and mirrors that are specifically arranged so that the small pieces of colored glass or plastic reflect and create beautiful patterns. As the bits of colored glass move, so do the patterns, never duplicating the same pattern twice. The kaleidoscope was invented by David Brewster in 1817. He named his invention using the Greek word kalos, meaning beautiful, and the Greek word eidos, meaning shape. What a perfect name. One could use this pairing of words to describe much of the art we create using the Zentangle Method.
Project Pack 17 is inspired by the kaleidoscope of our lives. We will honor the artistry of the patterns they form as they pair and layer with others to form new patterns and create works of art. Taking advantage of the geometric shapes of tiles, we will gradually guide you through adding tangles to the tiles and watch how they interact with other tiles to create meta-patterns that change as you rearrange the tiles, like a kaleidoscope. We will explore a fun selection of tools that allows us to dig deep into layering shades of gray with accents of jewel tones.
