he Zentangle method of drawing is an easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. This practice increases mental focus, encourages creative expression and promotes artistic confidence while offering a sense of wellbeing. Zentangle is suitable for a wide range of skill, interests and ages.
During this introduction, students learn the basics and begin to see life through the world of Zentangle. The class will begin with a short explanation of the concept, benefits and history of Zentangle. Each student will receive all materials needed to complete two paper Zentangle “tiles”. Six “tangle” designs will be demonstrated by the instructor and drawn by the students. Through shading techniques, students will learn to bring their designs to life. As a meditative practice it is satisfying, soothing and relaxes the brain. Zentangle drawing encourages people to unleash their inner artist especially if they have no formal art training. However, those with art experience are enthusiastic about this fun and creative exercise as well.
