Going Green Zentangle® Zoom Session: Includes Materials 

SOLD OUT

Saturday, August 1, 2020 1:00pm - 3:30pm
Online Zoom Class
Instructor: Annie Reiser

$50 includes all materials and shipping

A beautiful gray “Zendala” is our canvas for this organic design based on the Zentangle Project Pack Number 9. I picked out my favorite tangles from that project and put them together to represent a little round “Zen” garden that I know you will have fun drawing. The color theme is green rather than the typical black and white, thus the title. I posted a photo of the entire project of six Zendalas for inspiration, but our class will do just this one. 

All materials and shipping are included in the price. See photo of the kit (in the "store") you will receive for this class. Limited to 12. Please sign up by July 26 to receive materials in time for class.

The Zen of Paradox: Includes Materials NEW

Saturday, August 8, 2020 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Online Zoom Class
Instructor: Annie Reiser

$60 includes all materials and shipping

This Zendala tile stars the tangle pattern Paradox, by Rick Roberts, co-founder of the worldwide Zentangle® art movement with Maria Thomas. The project is a “monotangle,” meaning that the entire piece is comprised of just that one pattern, Paradox.

 

In this class you will step out the pattern on a provided “Tangle Tag” and learn about what happens when you place the pattern in different directions to create beautiful meta patterns; a column or a fan shape. It is pure magic!

You will learn to shade with colored pencils, layer colors, and burnish them for a stunning result. You will be working on a pre-strung contour that provides the basis of our design. Enjoy the Zentangle process of creating beautiful art, one step at a time. Beginners as well as advanced “tanglers” welcome.

All materials and shipping are included in the price. See photo of kit you will receive in store. Limited to 12. Please sign up by August 2 to receive materials in time for class.
