This series of classes will give you a basic understanding of the Zentangle Method (TM), which is the artful use of structured patterns and shapes to create intricate and fantastic pictures with ink on Zentangle squares. Students will learn how to create a basic original Zentangle tile in the first session, and then will expand upon the basic concepts with the addition of new patterns and concepts in the following 5 sessions. Techniques learned include patterning with lines and shapes, using strings to make templates, completing deliberate and intentional pen strokes, and the addition of sepia and color to the repeated patterning.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Melanie has had a lifelong love of all things "Arts" and a 30 year affiliation with BRMAA.
Intending to teach English Lit, she discovered that teaching preschool was her true calling. Teaching the Arts to these young children opened her mind to all the possibilities of early art education. Her motto for teaching art is "it is the process, not the product that is important".
Art education is at it's best when it allows students to " mess about" with materials and discover their own medium.
Upon retiring, Melanie, a life-long "doodler" discovered ZENTANGLE®! ZENTANGLE® is an art form that is all about the process! Anyone can learn the repetitive patterns that are done with pen and ink....and then transform them into their own individual works of art. ZENTANGLE® is also known as "yoga for the brain" as it's relaxing technique is said to help with focus and memory.
Melanie welcomes anyone, at any skill level, into her classes and guarantees a wonderful, satisfying ART experience!
