Renaissance Panel – Tangling on Linen
Sunday, February 17, 1:00-4:30pm
Instructor: Annie Reiser
Using the colors, patterns, and techniques of the Renaissance, create an art piece that draws its inspiration from sketches done by the great masters. Annie Reiser, certified Zentangle® instructor and botanical artist, will show you how to work with rusty tones and Zentangle® patterns to create magic on a linen-covered panel. A key part of the class is exploring how shadows and highlights add depth to a design. This ability to manipulate dark and light areas in order to create the illusion of three-dimensionality was prized during the Renaissance. Annie’s design features several different Zentangle® patterns, which she’ll review before everyone starts drawing with colored pens on their linen panel. The finished panels are beautiful framed, put under glass as a decorative accent, or left unframed and displayed on an easel. A stunning addition to any wall or table! This class is best for those who already have some Zentangle® experience.
Please bring the following optional materials:
Sketchbook or notebook
