Introduction to Zentangles
4 sessions, 12 hours
“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 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.
