Event description

Description

The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. We call these patterns, tangles. You create tangles with combinations of dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves and orbs. These simple shapes are the "Elemental Strokes" in all Zentangle art. These patterns are drawn on small pieces of paper called "tiles." We call them tiles because you can assemble them into mosaics.

Zentangle art is non-representational and unplanned so you can focus on each stroke and not worry about the result. There is no up or down to Zentangle art. If fact, you can most easily create Zentangle art by rotating your tile as you tangle -- always keeping your hand in a relaxed position. You don't need to know what a tangle is going to look like to draw it. You just need to know the steps. The result is a delightful surprise.

As you use the Zentangle Method to create beautiful images, you likely will enjoy increased focus, creativity, self-confidence and an increased sense well-being.

About Marie: I'm an empty nester, loving living in Philadelphia. I'm a full time Mindfulness Meditation Teacher, and a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT). I have a practice at "Building Bridges" in Media, Pennsylvania, where I see patients and private clients and also work with a company called "Do It Better Wellness", providing education on breathing techniques and the neuroscience of meditation. I teach Zentangle, meditation, give private guided Meditation sessions, and group Zentangle for Meditation classes. I offer Meditation workshops in Springfield, Manyunk and Swarthmore, during which I teach the Zentangle Method, breathing techniques and mindful movement for relaxation and well being. I'm a 5th generation RMT, Usui Reiki Ryoho, Reiki Senior Teacher (or "master") with 30 years experience, and work with cancer and hospice patients of all ages using all of these balancing, meditative methods.

Class is $50 which includes supplies!
