Zentangle like boxes

My 3rd graders love the idea of Zentangle.  We watched a few videos on Youtube and they were hooked.  now they add hints of Zentangle in all sorts of places.  We used our pictures to make origami boxes.The results were great.

Coil Clay Faces

This is a neat project I did with 5th grade to cover coil building with clay.  Next time I would make the coils thicker to avoid so much breakage.  Those that are about the thickness of an index finger were the best.  We used Picasso as inspiration and emhasized organic shapes.  I like them unpainted, but you could probably add color if you wanted.  Here they are displayed on top of the original sketches.
