This course is an introduction to the Zentangle drawing method. Students will learn the history and philosophy of Zentangle, the applications and the steps of creating a Zentangle tile, and at least nine “tangles” or patterns. We will work with colored tiles, black tiles, round tiles, white pencil and ink, and colored pencils. We will learn shading and other special techniques. The Zentangle method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way for beginners to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It increases focus and creativity, while providing artistic satisfaction along with a sense of personal well-being and empowerment. Zentangle classes are taught by certified Zentangle teachers (CZTs). Students will need to purchase a $25 kit (which contains everything they will need) from the instructor. • Active participation.
