Students will learn ways to combine a variety of tangle patterns using black and brown ink and highlighting with a white charcoal and graphite pencil. This class is a great way to incorporate the meditative and creative aspect of this art form. This is an intermediate class.

Tangle Recipes

In this class students will gain an understanding of tangle types, ways to achieve balance of patterns, and methods of adding tangle enhancers and embellishments to their Zentangle tiles.  Get ready to mix, match and tangle as we learn to combine patterns in the Tangle Recipes Class.

Dynamic Dingbatz

Typically, a dingbats are a typographical symbol other than a letter or number, to add visual interest; to frame text or large initials.  In Zentangle, Dingbatz (with a “z”) are used in a similar way.  They are fun to draw using familiar Zentangle techniques, and they can add a little magic to just about any surface.

The beginning class is a prerequisite.For returning students, please bring your beginners kit. Contact me if you need to schedule the beginning class prior to taking this class. I will be glad to give you a private lesson teaching you the techniques and designs needed from the beginning class.

Washi Tape Beyond the Basics

I got this idea from my my friend, CZT Nancy Domnauer, from Line Dot Calm who came up with this class idea! We will use Washi Tape as our “string” (one of the 8 steps) to separate our tangle designs. This class allows participants to further develop their Zentangle practice. It's fun! It's relaxing!  Come learn some new designs in our Zentangle Beyond Basics class using Washi Tape. Students will learn ways to combine a variety of beautiful tangle patterns, and ways to incorporate the meditative aspect of this art form into their Zentangle art piece.  It’s fun! It’s relaxing! It helps increase your focus, creativity, relaxation, concentration, and so much more.

Organic Zentangles

This is an intermediate class for those who have completed the Introduction Class. You will experience the satisfaction of completing your own unique, finished piece of art using organic style tangles without too much structure and enjoy the meditative quality this wonderful art form has to offer.
