Times: 6 pm-8 pm (four meetings)
Thursdays:  May 10, 17, 24, 31
Max. enrollment: 12

You will be able to draw a simple but satisfying piece of art in 60 minutes.  The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns, called tangles. These patterns are drawn on small pieces of paper called “tiles.” We call them tiles because you can assemble them into mosaics.  Zentangle art is non-representational and unplanned so you can focus on each stroke and not worry about the result. There is no up or down to Zentangle art.  It is a proven method to promote mindfulness and fosters self-esteem, self-confidence, focus, relaxation, creativity, and stress relief. People of all ages and skill levels can create Zentangle® art and have fun in the process,




Frequently asked questions

  1. I notice that some classes (like Drawing and Cartooning) are offered both as one day workshops and four-week classes (for a higher tuition). What’s the difference between the one day and several-week versions?
    Our One-Day Workshops are a short, focused introduction to the key elements of a topic. Our four week classes explore the same subjects in more depth, with more in-class practice exercises. The four week classes have almost twice as many class hours as the one day versions, so there’s a chance to go into more detail. The longer versions also usually have homework assignments, so students can keep practicing and learning between class sessions. With that said – some students love the one day version because it gives them a chance to really lose themselves in a topic in a single day. And of course some people’s schedules lend themselves more to a one day or one evening class.
  2. Are all of your classes available in one-night day or one night versions?
    Not yet, but more One Night Wonders and One Day Workshops will be added soon, so please check back. If you’d like to see a one-day or one-night version of a longer class we offer, please drop us an email and we’ll try to set it up.
