“Anything is possible…one stroke at a time!’’ This is based on the Zentangle® art method developed by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. Discover this easy-to-learn drawing technique that inspires creativity and develops mindfulness. This method is used as a way to reduce stress, free your mind and increase focus. Combine simple, repetitive drawing strokes into ‘’tangle’’ patterns to create a one of a kind works of art. Working on a 3.5-inch square paper tiles, students will learn basic tangles, how to shade to make drawings appear 3-D, and how to embellish any drawing. No art experience is necessary.
