Traditional Classes

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.”®

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.

Zentangle: Zendalas®:

$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.
