Zendala Dare and Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces Challenge

This week at I am the Diva ( Laura Harms's blog) is guest blogger Erin Olson from Zendala Dare Challenge. This week's challenge at the Diva is we have to use Erin Olson's template provided to create a Zendala.

For this week's challenge I  created a Zendala on my iPad. I haven't been tangling for a couple of weeks and my hands were itching to tangle ! I generally tangle with some soft New Age Music. 

Here is my entry for this week's challenge: 

Apps used: Sketchclub
Medium: iPad Art

And here is my entry for last week's challenge-- Guest Blogger Sandy Hunter challenged us to create a tile leaving some negative space ( white space). I found this challenge  very difficult as I am one of those artists who  has to fill the entire tile with tangles ( no white space) , so I had to really remind myself to not fill in the negative space with tangles. I decided to keep it simple for this challenge.

iPad Art --Sunnyvale Summer Camp Pics

I am truly  blessed that I was able to inspire a curious group of children to create art using their iPad. Students were taught how to use Paper by 53 app and Procreate.

This  week long ( July 13 to July 17,2015) camp was held at the Sunnyvale Community Center, Sunnyvale CA. Age group of children were 7 to 9 years.

I thank the team at  Mobile Art Academy and the staff at the Sunnyvale Community Center for making this possible.

And here are the artworks of my amazing and talented  students. All of them did a wonderful job !
