After the Introduction to Zentangle class, you may be interested in pursuing this relaxing art form. Here are some possible avenues to explore:
- Private lessons. I am available for private lessons--individual and small group classes. These can take place in your home, or we can find a suitable meeting place, based on the size of the group. Private and small group lessons are $50 for two hours of instruction. Supplies and room rental fees, if applicable, are extra.
- Public lessons. I offer classes that explore different tile types and tangles. These two-hour classes are $35. Supplies and room rental fees, if applicable, are extra. I advertise these classes on my blog, zenspar.blogspot.com.
- Public classes. Sertoma Art Center usually offers a series of Zentangle classes that go from introductory to more advanced levels.
- meetup.com has a group called Zentangle®: The Triangle Tangle Meetup. The leader is a CZT and offers classes periodically. They are usually $25-$35.
- zentangle.com. The newsletter and blog frequently have instructions for new patterns. By visiting the archives, you can see step-outs for all the patterns created by the founders, Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. While you’re there, you’ll see many examples of their own art.
- youtube has great instructional Zentangle® videos. My favorite is Ellen Wolters. She is easy to follow, has many videos, and will actually make a video for you if you’re having trouble with a particular pattern.
- tanglepatterns.com. This is where you can find step-by-step instructions for almost every published tangle! There is also a great sorting feature that allows you to search for certain types of patterns, eg grids, ribbons, heart-shaped, free-form, etc. You can also sign up for emails that introduce new patterns.
- Challenges. All over the world, Zentangle® enthusiasts come together every week via the internet and social media to create tiles that meet the parameters of different challenges. These challenges usually suggest a string, or a theme, or certain patterns and give you the opportunity to post your work for all to admire. If you’re still a bit shy, you don’t have to post, and you can still admire and be inspired by others’ work! Just google “Zentangle challenges”.
