Zentangle Basics

Date: Wednesday, August 7, 2019

Time: 6:30-9:00 PM

Location: The Painted Turtle (17459 Oak Park Avenue, Tinley Park, IL)

Anything is possible…one stroke at a time. ™

At first glance, a Zentangle creation can seem intricate and complicated. But, when you learn how it is done, you realize how simple it is. Then, when you create a piece of Zentangle art, you realize how fun and engrossing the process itself is.

Zentangle can produce all the positive benefits of mindfulness in addition to…
*Sparking creativity
*Increased focus
*Relaxation without sleepiness or feeling zoned out
*Increase self-esteem and confidence through the accomplished result
*It is fun and easier than sitting on a pillow and meditating.

You will learn the basics of the dots, string, simple "tangles" and shading to produce a beautiful framable, gift-able work of art. :)

Please join me for a an inspirational evening of meditative, creative artistry.
