March 8 – Zentangle 201 – Black Tile class

Francie & Finch Bookshop is offering a Zentangle 201 – Black Tile class on Thursday, March 8th. The class will be held at the shop in the historic Telephone Building at 130 S. 13th Street at 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.  The class will be led by Certified Zentangle Teacher, Carrie Smith.

Create dramatic black tiles with white ink and pencil.  These tiles really pop!  Join Carrie, Certified Zentangle Teacher, and your fellow tanglers for more fun, focus, and relaxation!

What is Zentangle?

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,  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.

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

We believe that life is an art form and that each person is an artist.  The Zentangle Method is an elegant metaphor and model for inspiring a deliberate artistry in life.

For those with previous Zentangle experience, the one-and-a-half hour class is $30 and includes all your Zentangle supplies.   Limited to first 10 participants.   Call 402 781 0459 to register.
