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.

JUMPSTART game returns. We'll roll the dice to choose our patterns. This fun class will be excellent for both beginners and more experienced tanglers. Bring "usual supplies"; see description below.
I'll bring gray tiles if you'd like to try them--so you may want to have a white gelly roll pen and a white pencil or chalk. I'll also have Jumpstart kits available for "acquisition".
************************

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".

FIRST-TIMERS: If you are brand new to Zentangle, I'm happy to send you my Beginner's Guide, that will fill you in on background, basic techniques and some starter patterns. Just email me at [masked] with "Beginner's Guide Request" in the subject line. Beginner Guide will also be available as a handout at the class.

Our lesson will begin promptly at noon. Sue will demonstrate patterns and techniques for you to follow along. During the last few minutes we'll share our creations and wrap-up.

There are two IN-PERSON sessions each month, on the first and third Thursdays. Generally, the first 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 second 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/pens.

Pen recommendations: Sakura Pigma Micron 01; Uniball Vision Micro; Sharpie Ultra Fine (look for "no-bleed" on the package, solid black barrel). 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.

Donations: Class is free, but donations are appreciated and encourage your instructor. You may put your contribution in the box near the door, usually on the table with any handouts for the class. If you prefer, use Paypal ([masked]) or mail cash/check to Sue Schneider,511 Bevington Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15221. Thank you for your support and encouragement. Suggested donation: $5-10 per class.

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

Happy tangling to all,
