    Art Foundations-Untangle with ‘Tangling’: Zentangle with Rhonda Roy

    Sep 26, 2022  10am -3pm

    Using The Zentangle Method, this class will explore using elemental strokes and simple materials to create non-representational structured patterns that weave into a small completed 3.5” work of art.  Areas of focus will be the importance of the ‘process not outcome’ aspect of Zentangle,  the mindfulness element (sometimes called ‘yoga for your brain’), incorporating into your own art practice, including warm-ups, block-breakers, and Zentangle Inspired Art (ZIA).

    All materials included for this class.

    Cost:  $100

    About the Instructor:   Rhonda Roy is a Zentangle artist and Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT). She discovered Zentangle in 2015, became a CZT in April 2016 and has been teaching Zentangle classes and creating Zentangle Inspired Art since then. Rhonda believes we are all born with a need and an ability to create, and that Zentangle is a great way to awaken that creative side in us all.
