Oodles of doodles

Today, I’m showing you a ghost zentangle that I made yesterday, inspired by this mandala. And a “double draw” or two-handed drawing, which I first encountered here.

The latter was also a technique my students tried today in fine motor class, as well as the Michelangelo technique (lying on your back and drawing with your arm extended up), and the “easel” technique (standing with extended arm, the hand not touching the paper.) I noticed that a lot of kids were tempted to rest their wrist or even forearm on the paper while drawing standing and I kept telling them to reposition their arm. Each technique had its challenges but everyone seemed to have fun.
