I have scheduled five Zentangle classes for Thursday and Friday, August 20 – 21. An “Introduction to Zentangle” class for kids 6-12 years will be offered Thursday morning, 10:00 – 11:30 am in downtown Orofino at The Wild Hare. Additional “Introduction to Zentangle” classes will be also be offered Thursday for teens or adults, from 1:00 am – 3:30 pm and 6:00 – 8:30.

Students in the Introductory classes will be introduced to the Zentangle drawing method and the steps for creating original Zentangle artworks. No artistic experience is necessary and students are provided with clear, simple instruction in a safe, judgement free environment.  The number of students in each class will be limited to 12. Supplies are included in the class fee.

Two new classes are being offered on Friday, August 21 for individuals who have previously taken an introductory Zentangle class. Susan will introduce students in the “Introduction to Zentangle Renaissance” class to drawing on toned paper utilizing brown, black and white pens on tan tiles. They will learn to create shadows and highlights with graphite and white charcoal pencils and other media. Students should plan to bring their pens and pencils from previous Zentangle classes.

In the “Introduction to Black Tiles” class, students will use the the Zentangle Method with black tiles, white Gelly Roll® pens, and white Zenstone Chalk. Susan will also introduce other options for shading and adding color to the black tiles.

Pre-registration is required for all classes. To pre-register, stop in at the The Wild Hare, 208-476-3358, downtown Orofino. Please contact me for more information, to inquire about arranging classes in other settings or at different times, or to arrange for private lessons.

Zentangle is a fun and easy to learn method for creating beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. Learning to create through the Zentangle method can improve focus, stimulate creativity, increase confidence, and improve fine motor skills.
