Asheboro, NC - What is a Zentangle®?  It is a doodle-like drawing created with equal parts concentration and relaxation.  Certified Zentangle Teacher, Lisa Skeen will offer two opportunities to enjoy this mindful practice of creativity at the Randolph Arts Guild (R.A.G.), on Saturday September 27th.  She will lead a beginning section, Zentangle I from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and an advanced section, Zentangle II from 1 p.m. -- 3 p.m.  It is suggested to have taken at least one Zentangle class prior to enrolling in the advanced class.  Each class costs $40 for R.A.G. members and $45 for non-members.  All materials are provided.  Payment and completed registration are required for enrollment.  The enrollment deadline is Saturday, September 20.  These classes are designed for high school ages & up and meet at the Randolph Arts Guild located at 123 Sunset Avenue in downtown Asheboro.  For more information and to register contact the Randolph Arts Guild at (336) 629-0399.

Zentangle I is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from structured patterns. It is a fascinating mindfulness practice and art form that is fun and relaxing.  Regular Zentangle practice helps to increase focus and expand creativity while reducing stress.  It’s portable, does not rely on technology, there’s no wrong way to do it, and you WILL be successful!  ABSOLUTELY NO ART EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY.  Practicing Zentangle will help you release your inner artist - even if you think you don’t have one!  In Zentangle I, you’ll learn 8 basic "tangle" (kind of like a drawing pattern) and complete two Zentangle tiles in a fun, relaxed and supportive atmosphere.  Basic shading methods will be introduced.  The class includes a mini-kit so you can tangle at home.

XZentangle II is a continuation of Zentangle I.  Bring your mini-kit -- drawing tiles will be provided.    You’ll learn 8 more complex tangles and complete two Zentangle tiles.   Additional options for shading and adding color will be introduced, and topics of student interest will be covered, time permitting.  Materials for further exploration will be available for purchase separately.  Cash and credit accepted on site.  NO checks, please.
