Zentangle Classes


Student tile from a Beginning Zentangle class!


Zentangle® Classes

What on earth, you may ask, is Zentangle®?  Excellent question!  Zentangle® is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from structured patterns. It is a fascinating new art form that is fun and relaxing.  It increases focus and creativity while reducing stress.  It’s portable, does not rely on technology, there’s no wrong way to do it, and you WILL be successful!  ABSOLUTELY NO ART EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY.  Practicing Zentangle® will help you release your inner artist – even if you think you don’t have one! My classes are held in various locations around the Triad area; see the dates and times below to find one that fits your schedule.  If you wish to host a workshop, or have a Zentangle birthday party or bridal shower (talk about FUN!!!), email me and we can discuss it!

In BEGINNING ZENTANGLE®, you’ll learn 8 basic tangles and complete two Zentangle® tiles in a fun, relaxed and supportive atmosphere.  Basic shading methods will be introduced.  Class fee is $45 and includes a mini-kit so you can tangle at home – materials for further exploration will be available for purchase separately.  Cash and credit accepted on site; no checks, please.

Upcoming class dates:

Saturday July 15, 2017 at   1:00 p.m.

Zentangle® 2 is a continuation of ZT1 -Bring your MINI KIT – tiles will be provided.    You’ll learn 8 more, more complex tangles and complete two Zentangle® tiles.   Additional options for shading will be introduced, and topics of student interest will be covered, time permitting.  Materials for further exploration will be available for purchase separately.  Cash and credit accepted on site; NO checks, please.  PREREQUISITE:  ZT1 .

Zentangle® 3 is where it gets REALLY interesting because you’ll be drawing in reverse!  You’ll create tangles using WHITE ink on the yummy new BLACK Zentangle® tiles, AND you’ll begin to add some color to your creations.   Learn eight more tangles, cover topics of student interest (time permitting) and learn to shade with WHITE charcoal pencil.  Class fee is $50 and includes the white-on-black mini-kit with color.  Materials for further exploration will be available for purchase separately.  Cash and credit accepted; NO checks, please.  PREREQUISITE:  ZT1 and ZT2.


Beginning Zentangle® for Kids

Kids love patterns, and Zentangle® is perfect for kids!  Children will learn the basics of the Zentangle® drawing method in this fun intro-level workshop geared toward ages 8-12 (session 1) and 13 – 18 (session 2).  Students will learn eight simple tangles and basic shading methods in this two-hour class.  Continued Zentangle® practice can help develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, improve focus and concentration, encourage relaxation, and increase children’s ability to recognize patterns (all very helpful on EOGs). Students will go home with two pieces of artwork!  Class fee is $40 and includes all supplies for the class; materials for further exploration will be available for purchase separately.

Tangling on Textiles!

Get ready to create fun and funky handmade holiday gifts in this two hour workshop   You’ll be using special fabric dye pens to create a tangled monogram on a sweet little tote bag.  What an excellent way to spend a Sunday afternoon – bring a friend and make an afternoon of it!
Bring your mini-kit or purchase one for $5.  Workshop fee is $75 and includes tote bag and other materials for the class.  PREREQUISITE:  ZT1 and ZT2.
