Zentangle® Classes Offered

Level 1: The Basics

Participants learn the philosophy behind Zentangle, take the first steps in creating tangles and practice repetitive pattern making to complete a Zentangle tile. 
Level 1 is required for most other Zentangle class offerings.
 
 

Level 2: The Basics Plus

Participants build on pattern making skills learned through the process of pattern deconstruction, the first step to creating one's own tangles.  Also taught is the technique of shading, this technique makes the Zentangle tile come alive.

Beyond the Basics -- also known as Zentangle Inspired or Tangled Art

In the Tangled Art class one begins with a recognizable final outcome. This approach is different from the "beginner's mind" of Zen where the outcome is unknown.
 
Use of color is introduced and incorporated.
 
 

Ensemble

en-sem'-ble, all parts of a whole taken together, such that each part is considered in relation to its whole.
 
Here participants engage in creating a finished piece of art work consisting of several individual Zentangle tiles pre-strung with a pattern drawn across all tiles so they fit together like a puzzle when completed.
 
Ensemble art pieces are fun projects for groups and is a great team building teaching tool for orgnizations.
 
 

Zendala or Zentangle inspired Mandala

Basic information about the Mandala, or circle prayer, art form is introduced.
 
Participants learn to build a Mandala without measuring using the skills and repetitive patterns or tangles learned in Zentangle Level 1.
