Zentangles: The art of mindful drawing
As I write this Spring is definitely in the air and is very welcome. Spring is a time for new ventures, and I’m about to embark on one! I wonder if you’ve heard of ZENTANGLES? Most people I mention this to in the UK haven’t, though it is big in America. The method brings mindfulness to drawing through creating patterns. There is a technique and then there are endless creative possibilities. You don’t need any drawing experience to learn to do Zentangles, but it’s also a helpful tool for established artists in creating a mindful, focused state when drawing. In April I am going over to Rhode Island, USA, to train to become a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT), and when I come back I will be setting up classes locally. The first of these starts at the beginning of the Summer Term on 24 April. I’m extremely excited to be embarking on this journey and adding Zentangles to the selection of Art classes I offer. I hope you can join me in being Mindfully Creative!
