Beginners 1: Introduction to Zentangle Class

Zentangle is a simple-to-learn, relaxing, meditative way to create beautiful art by drawing structured patterns, one stroke at a time. Unlike other art forms, there are no mistakes in Zentangle. You do not have to have any art, drawing or tangling experience to succeed in this class. If you can print the letters i-c-s-o, you can tangle.

In the introduction to Zentangle Class, you will learn the philosophy, method and approach to creating Zentangle art. You’ll walk away with a completed tile, an understanding of the Zentangle Method, the knowledge of how to create several tangles, shading techniques, all needed basic supplies and a resource list that will have you up and tangling and wanting to know more.
