In this social class, students will learn abstract Zentangle patterns while we relax, chat, and unwind. Taught by a Certified Zentangle Teacher, this class elevates drawing into a meditative practice that can help calm and center the mind. Perfect for beginner and experienced artists. Even the most intricate looking patterns are based on easy-to-draw lines and shapes. Together, we'll take...
The goal for this club is to learn to use art as a way to relax and focus. While students will learn some basic art techniques along the way, the point is to give them a way to quiet their minds, focus, and recharge their mental batteries.
I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) meaning that I have been trained in the Zentangle Method® and the best practices for teaching the art form. I decided to pursue the certification after several years of working with Zentangle patterns in my own art pieces.
No homework will be assigned. Students will be encouraged to finish the art pieces we start in class and to practice their patterns between sessions.
Students should have *White mixed media paper or 3.5" square art cards *A black fine tipped ink pen (such as a .01 Micron) *A soft sketch pencil (2B, HB, or 2H work best, but a #2 pencil will also work) *A blending stump or tortillon (Q-tips, tightly rolled paper towels or fingers can also be used to blend, but they may not be as precise) *Optional: A black .08 Micron or similar pen for coloring in large areas If the student wants to explore adding color to their designs, they should also have a set of colored pencils or gel pens.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
