Tangled Line Design
All you need is paper and a Sharpie marker! The art students first drew a continuous overlapping line Next they then filled each new shape with a pattern of lines. The patterns could be repeated in the design as a long as they were not right next to each other. Some students chose to color over their designs with watercolor markers when they were done. This is an excellent lesson to explore the element of art-line.
