Zentangle Introduction St George & Sutherland Community College

Zentangle Introduction

Learn in this creative and fun workshop how to draw structured patterns called tangles. The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing. It provides a pathway to creating art from patterns by breaking them down into elemental strokes. Using the Zentangle Method brings the enjoyment of increased focus, creativity, self-confidence, and an increased sense of well-being.

Tangling can be used as a meditative art process, quietening the mind and relaxing the body. There are ‘no mistakes’ with the belief that everyone is an artist. No previous artistic experience is needed and is suitable for anyone at any level. Learn Zentangle art, get creative and unwind with this unique art form.
