What we're about

Sharing our creative energies through the practice of the Zentangle(R) art method, we meet in a variety of venues in the Pittsburgh region to encourage exploration of this user-friendly drawing and meditation technique. No art skills are required, just a willingness to play, draw and share enthusiasm. Check out www.zentangle.com; then come play with us. This meet-up site also includes classes, events, exhibits, and other opportunities for folks interested in meeting with others to enjoy the art of Zentangle and tangentally related activities.

Welcome to Zoom Tangling. Sue Schneider will guide you through this meditative drawing art form. Step-by-step, you will learn the basic process for creating a small, abstract design using repetitive pattern skills. Zentangle is easy, relaxing and stress-free; perfect for "these challenging times". Our session will begin at 6:30 p.m. You may wish to arrive earlier to get everyone signed-in, settled, relaxed and focused. This is a good time to chat with your tangling friends, share "show-and-tell", and ask questions. There are 2 sessions each month, on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays. Generally, the 3rd Wednesday session will be geared to traditional Zentangle, especially suited to beginners--so if you're new you can learn the process and basic patterns. Experienced tanglers will find this useful as a refresher and fun group interaction. The 1st Wednesday session will explore a variety of themes and topics, often with new pattern introductions and techniques beyond the basics (e.g., shading, color, non-abstract, use of tinted papers, etc.). SUPPLIES NEEDED: Please provide a standard pencil, a fine tipped black marker, and paper on which to draw. Optional: Tortillion (blending stub), colored pencils, white and red fine tipped markers. Pen recommendations: Sakura Pigma Micron 01; Uniball Vision Micro; Sharpie Ultra Fine. Paper: We usually work on a 3.5" square paper (called a "tile"). Good quality papers that work well are Strathmore Vellum Bristol, 95# or 140# water color paper, a "Mixed Media" sketchbook, 65# card stock. In a pinch, a 4x6" blank index card will work, just cut it to 3.5" square. Please feel free to invite friends. They will need to sign up as Meet-up members (it's free) and RSVP to this meeting in order to get the link. Happy tangling to all, Sue Sue Schneider Certified Zentangle Teacher[masked] [masked]
