Hot on the heels of returning from America and proudly bearing my new status as a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT), I ran the first class of a 4 week course last Monday. We started with a short, gentle meditation then proceeded in following the 8 steps in creating beautiful ’tiles’ using a range of structured patterns. (A tile is a 3 1/2” square piece of artist’s quality paper). There were 4 of us and at the end we put the 4 tiles together to make a mosaic. This method of drawing can generate a relaxed and focused attention on the step by step process of moving the pen across the paper, seeing wonderful patterns unfold. The process can invite a sense of well-being and creative satisfaction. The next 4 week course starts on Monday 5th June.
