Experienced Zentangles (once you take the Intro class) can join us for this wild and crazy twist on the Zentangle art form. We'll start with a glass of Zinfandel -- and end with a beautiful Zentangle project. Along the way, we'll learn new tangles and ultimately learn to let go of perfectionism (the Zin helps with the Zen!)
This project class starts with heart shape that we color with shimmering watercolor paints -- which become the string we tangle within.
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.
If this is your 1st time learning Zentangle, we suggest you also do the afternoon class specifically for beginners (although experience is not necessary to take this one -- you'll just get the full story and my favorite beginner patterns.). Regardless of which session you can attend, 1st timers will get a basic kit so you can continue this art form as a ritual, adding more creativity, focus and beauty into your life.
Each month we will share at least 5 new patterns with variations, tips on creating strings, tiles, and shading -- and end with a collaborative project that has a big impact!
(Note: If this is your 1st Zentangle workshop - please sign-up for the Intro Class INSTEAD listed this same morning so you can start at 9am before this class begins to get the background, philosophy and basic patterns of Zentangle. That Intro class includes this one - so you will get to learn 5 more patterns from 10am - Noon).
First session: $35, includes basic Zentangle kit. At 10am this class will join the Intro class.)
Return each month for only $19, and continue to build your own Zentangle Reference Deck!
(Bring your own supplies for this special price, and bring a tile or piece of Zentangle artwork to show.)
