art is your soul knocking

“Zen Tangle Doodling is known to many artists and craftivistas as a way to create ZenTangles 1structured designs through drawing various patterns.  It is a formalized process that defines itself as something other than mere doodling because of its theory and approach. You will learn several step-by-step basic designs and have ample time to create your own unique designs. NO EXPERIENCE is necessary, but seasoned Zen Tangle Doodlers are welcome. All art materials are supplied.”

Party for Norma 5

According to art therapist and author Cathy Malchiodi, “Zentangle itself may be relatively new, but the basic principles involved are as old as the history of art. It includes ritual [a core practice in ancient and contemporary arts] and mirrors the symbols, designs and patterns of numerous cultures [Mayan, Maori, Celtic, and American Indian, for example] from ancient through present times. And like “doodling” it is based on a human behavior in which one refrains from planning and allows lines and shapes to unintentionally emerge.”

                                                It’s self-soothing!

It’s simple!

It reinforces creative aimlessness!

But most importantly, it is an afternoon of creative fun with friends!

The cost is $20 per person – all supplies and refreeshments are included in the price. Bring a friend and get a discount!
