New Online Class at CMS - Beginner Zentangle

To register, please go here:!event/2020/5/20/beginner-zentangle-online-class

Zentangle® is a simple-to-learn method to create beautiful art by drawing simple patterns. The process is a mindful and meditative art form that some use to enhance creativity, increase focus, or just to relax. In this class, participants will learn philosophy, method, and approach to creating Zentangle art. Students will put pen to paper and learn to tangle beautiful patterns on small square paper tiles. All materials will be provided by the instructor in class. If you can draw a line and very basic shapes, you can create beautiful work! No artistic experience is required, but artists looking to incorporate something new into their practice are welcome.

Ages 12 & up.

8 - 12 allowed with parent/ guardian accompaniment.

Workshop Fee:


Registration is limited to 12 participants, so please register ASAP!

Workshop Materials:

-Paper (any kind will do, though if you have drawing or art paper that is ideal) cut into 3.5 inch by 3.5 inch squares

  • Pencil (a standard school pencil is fine)

  • Pen (a black pen with a relatively fine tip is ideal, but a ballpoint will work great. Just pick your favorite pen for writing)

  • Blending tool (tortillons are ideal, but you can also use a q-tip or a clean sponge makeup applicator of the type used for eyeshadow)

  • Device with a large enough screen to view the instructor via a Zoom
