Tuna Zentangle

We have finally finished our tuna zentangle art and are pretty proud of how they look. We did this for art as part of our tuna study last term but our manu taratahi took so long to make that we ran out of time to finish the zentangle.

First, we learnt what zentangle is. It is a type of doodling that was designed to help relax and calm the mind. We then drew a basic outline of a tuna on white paper. Next, we added our zentangle designs with pencil and when we were happy with them we went over them with black vivid. Finally, we cut out the tuna, glued it onto tin foil, cut that out and pasted it onto coloured paper. We hope you enjoy our work!


  1. Hi Room 5,

    This sounds like a really cool art project! I like that you combined two different mediums - the fish and the zentangle to create your finished project. Unfortunately, the pictures aren't showing up on our devices, so perhaps you could reupload these?
