The Zentangle Monthly Share: Marbled Strings
(Note: Other fun Zentangle get-togethers will now be posted on a separate Meetup site. Join HERE so you don't miss any fun activities!)
Come learn some fun new patterns AND see a Demo of our Marbling technique! Marbling is a great way to get an elegant (but still random) string on which to draw your patterns!
Purchase tiles at The ARTbar and you can try it out too! We'll have the process ready and set-up for all you experimental souls.
This month we'll be drawing tangles on an elegant marbled background. Here's a sample of all the fun we'll have!!
1) Zentangle Share: bring a piece of your recent artwork to be entered into a drawing!
2) Tangles Share: I'll share a few tangles you can add to your collection.
3) Marbling Demo
4) Open Studio!: you'll have time to talk and tangle in our inspirational environment on one of the marbled tiles from the Demo.
(Psssst. Ask nicely and we'll show you our calligraphy hacks - ways to make your handwriting look like modern calligraphy without years of practice. But ssssshhhhhh - don't tell the calligraphers!)
The Zentangle Monthly Share is a time and place for Zentangle artists to come together to share our artwork and new patterns we've learned. Once you have taken the Intro to Zentangle class here at The ARTbar, then you are eligible to register for this Monthly Share.
(Note: If this is your 1st Zentangle workshop here at The ARTbar, you will want to sign up for the Intro to Zentangle Workshop. We want everyone to have gone thru the same 5 basic tangles, and most importantly, the philosophy behind Zentangle.
Bring a piece of artwork to share and get entered into the drawing to win a prize! Share a pattern and get entered a second time! Or just come to relax, get inspired, and learn some new patterns.
------------------------Zentangle is the practice of creating beautiful images from repeating patterns. There are over 100 patterns in Zentangle. Each pattern is made up of easy, yet deliberate, strokes of the pen, using combinations of dots, lines and arcs. The pattern is usually non-representational in and of itself, but when the strokes are combined together they make an exquisite impact.
This class is done to relaxation music in our inspirational studio where you can put your intention into your creations. Closed beverages suggested to protect artwork.
Return each month for only $15, and continue to build your own Zentangle toolbox of patterns!
(Bring your own supplies for this special price, and bring a tile or piece of Zentangle artwork to show if you wish.)
