Introduction to Zentangle® Class & Watercolor – What to Expect

This class walks students through the Zentangle Method® using several foundational patterns. The first week, we will set up several watercolor washes and then create a black & white tile to learn the Zentangle Method® and to get familiar with the tools. The second week, we will create two tangles using our favorite washes created in the first week. The first tangle will use the patterns learned in the first week and the second tangle will use new patterns.

This class is intended for new tanglers who are unfamiliar with The Zentangle Method® and experienced tangles who would like to learn about using watercolors in their creations. I also offer an introductory class without watercolor: Introduction to Zentangle®.

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.
