When I opened the catalog of the Columbia Arts Association, my curiosity kicked in when I saw they were offering a Zentangle class. I quickly signed up and took my first Zentangle class this past Saturday. You may be asking yourself, what the heck is Zentangle? Well, Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.
The instructor was very pleasant as she gave the class some history on how Zentangle came to be and that almost anyone can use it to create beautiful images. She told us that it can be very soothing, of course, it helped that she had Native American music playing in the background. As we watched her and tried to create our own Zentangle, I found that it increased my focus and creativity. The end result was very satisfying for me (see my Zentangles below).
So has your interest been piqued? If yes, what are you waiting for...you should check it out. I know that I can't wait to Zentangle again!
