If you're looking for an easy, step-by-step guide for learning Zentangle®, you've found it!
If you're like me, you may have tried to learn this art form on your own & found yourself stumped. You might have watched YouTube videos on particular tangles or techniques and felt like there were gaps in your learning. Personally, I struggled constantly with the question, "Now what?" as I attempted to learn it. The courses on this site are designed to answer that question before you even ask it!
With the Tangling Basics course, you get an easy, step-by-step guide that picks up where the Free Zentangle Introductory Course left off. Dive into this course for 6 more tangles on 9 different tiles. Each tile is presented in the same easy-to-follow format as the Introductory Course. At the end of the course, the 8 tangles you've learned will be like comfort food, ready to be drawn without thinking. Personally, drawing these 8 tangles take me into a relaxed, peaceful zen-like experience every time I draw them. You'll even hear it in my voice!
So let's expand the skills you've learned and add more tangles to your growing tangle library. The course also contains Zenful reminders to help guide you to a relaxed focus, with art as the gateway.
Sign up today and relax into tangling. You'll be glad you did!
