The Zen of Paradox- a Zentangle® Adventure Class ONLINE
Saturday, December 5,1-3pm MDT
Instructor: Annie Reiser
Limit: 12 students. Includes class kit + shipping
This intricate mandala stars the tangle pattern Paradox, which was created by Rick Roberts, co-founder of the worldwide Zentangle® art movement. It’s hard to believe that the mandala is made using just that one pattern! But pure magic happens when the same tangle is drawn in different directions and linked together. The first step in making your own mandala is to “step out” the Paradox pattern on a Tangle Tag provided by instructor Annie Reiser, a certified Zentangle® teacher and an art instructor at the Denver Botanic Gardens. (“Step out” means to build up the pattern one line at a time.) Annie will then show you how to form the mandala’s distinctive star shape by manipulating and connecting individual tangles. She’ll also demonstrate how to create visual depth by layering color and shading the mandala with a colored pencil. A quick burnishing and you’re done! Join Annie to enjoy creating beautiful art the Zentangle® way – one step at a time. The class is for both beginning and experienced tanglers.
