You see the Z in the first card, right? Tanglers often start with the three patterns in the cards above. It’s amazing how much someone can do with just these – all three are incredibly versatile! The Intro to Zentangle class sets up beginning tanglers for learning more complex patterns. We will learn three basic basic patterns with variations and create a design with them. This class is taught in black & white. Because it is a class for new tanglers, we do not work in color. If your student wants to learn how to incorporate color into their tangles, check out my other classes.

- White mixed media paper or 3.5″ square art cards
- A black fine tipped ink pen (such as a .01 Micron)

- Colored pencils or gel pens – if you want to add color.

The Zentangle Method® offers a way to create beautiful art while relaxing and focusing our intentions. In my classes, students learn abstract Zentangle patterns while we relax, chat, and unwind. These classes elevate drawing into a meditative practice that can help calm and center the mind. Perfect for beginner and experienced artists – and even for people who think they can’t draw! Even the most intricate looking patterns are based on easy-to-draw lines and shapes. Together, we’ll take it one step at a time.
The Outschool platform started as a small learning site geared towards homeschoolers. The pandemic saw an influx of students from traditional schooling backgrounds and Outschool responded. Now, it’s a popular platform that serves students world-wise with thousands of teachers and topics. Outschool provides a safe, inclusive space for all learners and has been a part of our family’s homeschool journey since 2017. I became a teacher there in 2020 when the pandemic forced me to close my in-person studio.
