Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. Through its meditative qualities, it increases focus and creativity and provides an increased sense of peace and personal well-being.
In the first hour of our Sun Image Zentangle class,participants learn seven "tangles" which are easy-to-learn step-by-step drawings consisting of either a line, dot or circle which are then combined to create abstract patterns. Drawing the tangles stroke-by-stroke creates a focus which in turn creates a relaxing and meditative state. In the second hour, participants apply the tangles to a unique line drawing of a sun image which they create together step-by-step and can then take home and color.
The Sun Image class is taught by Certified Zentangle Teacher Cindy O'Brien. A North Attleboro resident, O'Brien is the owner of Artiste Art and Craft Studio. As a practicing artist for more than 30 years, including gallery shows in Provincetown and Newbury Street, Boston, O'Brien's goal as a teacher is to get people excited about art and just have fun!
