Zentangle art is drawing with repetitive patterns. My snowflakes may look complex, but they are made from just adding lots of arrows to my star template.
I tried out some new Stabilo markers for this drawing, and totally love the pointMax set. The tips are nice and firm, so it makes them a pleasure to draw with. The company makes other super fine markers, but I think this size is perfect for trying to draw thin lines that turn info colorful snowflakes.
I know my last week of school is going to be full of interruptions and upside down schedules, so I made this very simple template so my older students could make a pretty card, without a whole lot of instructions. The process here is really just two steps: Trace the dashed lines and make arrows sitting on the gray lines. Then rinse and repeat (you know what I mean!).
- Zentangle Snowflake PDF template
- White cardstock paper
- Stabilo pointMax Markers
- Premium cardstock paper
- Glue stick
- PREP: Print a Snowflake template on white card stock for each student.
- The snowflakes are made of two different kinds of lines – dashed and gray. The first step is to trace all the dashed lines.
- To make a pretty end cap on the dashed lines, draw a small circle on each.
- Starting in the center and working out, a small arrow or upside down “V” is draw on top of a gray line. This is continued until the last arrow reaches the end.
- The process is repeated in each section until the snowflake is complete.
- The card may be folded and given as is, or glued to a larger sheet of colored paper to give it a finished look.
