Introduction to Zentangle® Class – What to Expect

This class walks students through the Zentangle Method® using three foundational patterns. We will create a tangle using the “basic” versions of each pattern. We will then create a second design using easy variations of the patterns. Students will be encouraged to make up a variation of their own if they feel comfortable.

This class is intended for new tanglers who are unfamiliar with The Zentangle Method®. Experienced tangles are welcome, though, as an introductory course is a great way to reconnect with the art form. I also offer a version of this class using watercolor: Intro Zentangle with Watercolor.

Classroom Information & Policies

Zoom links will be emailed to you before class. The class will be recorded and you’ll have access to that recording for 7 days after the class. Also, at the conclusion, you will be provided with reference materials for the patterns we created.

In our time together, I will create a judgement-free zone. There are no mistakes in Zentangle! That means that each participant can go at their own pace and ability. I will encourage everyone to experiment and see what works for them.
