Zentangle Classes

Upcoming Zentangle® Classes

Winter 2018 Classes

Traditional Classes

Zentangle 101: January 10, 2:00-4:00
Students should purchase the Sakura® Zentangle® Original Tool Set, White. These are available from Michael's.

The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. Almost anyone can use it to create beautiful images. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well-being. The Zentangle Method is enjoyed all over this world, across a wide range of skills, interests and ages. We believe that life is an art form and that our Zentangle Method is an elegant metaphor for deliberate artistry in life.
This class will provide a beginner with a background in the history of Zentangle, introduce them to the basics steps of the method and expose them to associated vocabulary and tools used. Students will be immersed in creating actual Zentangle tiles and will leave with a clear understanding that, “Anything is possible one stroke at a time.”®

Zentangle: Renaissance Tiles 
Students should purchase the Sakura® Zentangle® Renaissance Tile/Pen Set, White. These are available from Michael's.
February 7, 10:00 - 12:00. Class is planned for two hours, but may run longer.
Students will benefit from having taken Zentangle 101.
$20.00 for instruction. Students should purchase the Sakura® Zentangle® Renaissance Tool Set. These are available from Michael's.

In this class, students will become familiar with the techniques that will give their work that recognizable Renaissance look and feel. They will explore tangles from a new angle. Working on Zentangle Renaissance Tiles (tan), students will use brown, black and white pens to work the surface, and continue to create shadow and highlight with graphite and white charcoal pencils. Using the paper as a neutral starting point, they will use white pencil to work towards light or to create highlights and then use black and sepia ink to work towards dark or create shading Students should be familiar with the basic techniques of the Zentangle Method prior to taking this class.

Zentangle: Zendalas®: 
Will be rescheduled. Class is planned for two hours, but may run longer. Students will benefit from having taken Zentangle 101.
$20.00 for instruction. Students should purchase the Sakura® Zentangle® Zendala Tool Set. These are available from Michael's.
Mandala” is usually translated to mean a circular shape of patterns organized around a center. It can also be used to represent wholeness or even as a model for the organizational structure of life itself. The geometric flow and circular structure of mandalas seems to invite the use of the Zentangle Method. The two meet to create a beautiful work of art. In this class, we will use pre-strung circular tiles to build mandalas with tangles, or ‘Zendalas’. New tangles will be taught to fill in the mirrored sections of our paper tiles. Students will choose compatible tangles for centered as well as border patterns. A demonstration will be provided for developing one’s own Zendala strings. Students are provided with all needed materials. Students should be familiar with the basic techniques of the Zentangle Method prior to taking this class.

Advanced Classes:

Tangled Faces w/ Bokeh Backgrounds: Wednesday, March 14, 10:00 - 12:00 noon. $20.00 per person. Students should bring black Sakura pens, tortillion and black Zentangle pencils or other pencils for shading. We will be using Jane Davenport face stencils as well as stamp pads to tangle a Mother's Day or other type greeting card. We will pre-color the background using a bokeh effect, next stamp faces, then finish with tangles for hair, jewelry, etc. Students can choose to mask the face or to include the bokeh as shown. Students will be given a Bokeh stencil which they can keep for use later at home. Each student will start 2 or 3 cards to be finished either in class or at home if needed.

Black Tiles: Will be rescheduled. $30.00 (All materials included, $20.00 if materials are brought by students).
Students will have previous experience using the white Zentangle tiles, but in this class, we will reverse the materials and work white and colors on black tiles. The results are striking. Students will tangle with white and gel pens on pre-strung black Zendala tiles (round), which can be turned into hanging ornaments. All materials will be provided to use during class. Students will take completed tile with them. Students will use new Sakura white gel pens in various pen sizes and explore new shading techniques.
