Zentangle 101

September 23 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Zentangle 101
Saturday Sept. 23rd 1:30pm – 4pm
Cost: $55 (includes all materials)

We would like to invite you to join “CZT” (Certified Zentangle Teacher), Sam Taylor, as she takes you on a creative journey with the drawing method that is Zentangle®.

This is an introduction to Zentangle, no prior drawing experience necessary!

We will complete a traditional, abstract tile on top of lots of practice/technique.

Included in the registration fee is a variety of high quality papers and a Zentangle starter kit (pen, graphite, tortillion, etc.) to use in the class and extra to take home.
Zentangle is a method of combining repetitive patterns within a limited amount of space. It is not “just doodling”. There is a certain amount of structure underneath of the ink. It requires little time, space, money, or materials. Everyone is capable of “tangling” and those who are skeptical will be pleasantly surprised. Zentangle increases confidence, focus, awareness of one’s surroundings, and helps to conquer creative blocks. In essence, Zentangle is mindfulness that we channel through a pen. It has many applications that reach beyond pen and paper. This method has been applied to pottery, quilting, jewelry, tattooing, etc. Some of the patterns are very simple, some are more complex and create a healthy challenge. It’s just so satisfying and very therapeutic… especially when practiced beyond the classroom. You don’t have to have the steadiest drawing hand. You don’t have to be a practiced “artist”. The hardest thing about Zentangle is finding an acceptable excuse not to try it.
