Inte visste jag att det jag höll på med när jag pratade i telefon eller när jag satt och lyssnade på föreläsningar hade ett namn - Zentangle. Det som är så häftigt med Zentangle är att det går att göra väldigt enkelt och det går att utveckla i oändlighet. Dessutom är det väldigt avstressande, nästan meditativt (därav namnet ZEN-tangle) De som "skapade" Zentangle. I grunden handlar det dessutom om mönster, något som jag som mattelärare också älskar. Hur börjar man då? 1. 2. 3. 4. Det bästa är att det inte finns några rätt eller fel. Här är några förslag på hur man kan arbeta med Zentangle i barngrupp: I en barngrupp/skolklass hade jag börjat med att prata om mönster. Sedan kan man samla mönster på t ex tavlan- dela upp tavlan och låt barnen få fylla var sin bit med ett mönster - det behöver inte vara komplicerade saker - randigt, prickigt, hjärtan, rutigt, stjärnor... Låt barnen få göra sin egen zentangle - utgå från en form; ett hjärta, en stjärna, en kvadrat, en bokstav. Related:  Arte
