Class Description:

Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from structured patterns. It is a fascinating art form that is fun and relaxing. It can help to increase focus and creativity. Zentangle® provides artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of personal well being. No “artistic” talent or background is needed. Both those new to the Zentangle® method and those with experience are welcome. In this class the focus will be on “Zentangle® in Reverse” using white ink on black tiles. Students will learn the beginning steps for creating Zentangle® art using black paper tiles, white pen, and white charcoal pencil. A variety of patterns (called “tangles”) will be taught. Two tiles will be completed in the class and additional black tiles and the pens and pencils needed will be sent with the participants to continue their exploration of the Zentangle® method at home.

 Instructor: I have always been interested in drawing, but have never taken an art class. My attempts to self-teach using books and the internet just resulted in frustration. In May of 2011 I discovered Zentangle® which has opened a new world for me in creativity and confidence. I was getting so much out of the Zentangle® process that I wanted to share the experience with others. So in Oct. 2011 I attended a seminar in Providence, RI and became a Certified Zentangle® Teacher. I love seeing how even people with no art background are pleased and excited with what they can do with Zentangle®. I have taught previous Zentangle® classes in Houghton, Hancock, Iron Mountain, Manistique and Suring, WI.
