Here’s a chance to dive right into Zentangle with a 5-hour workshop; all materials included.
The McMillan Art Centre’s Art Foundations Program is designed for people who want more formal education in the basics of visual art theory, as well as techniques for different mediums. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the principles of art and how they might apply to their own art practice.
The Art Foundations Program begins with four core courses: Drawing, Colour Theory, Composition and Zentangle. These four courses will give an ‘elemental’ understanding of the underlying concepts used in creating visual art. The workshops cost $100 each and will run from 10am–3 pm.
Zentangle Foundations is on Monday, March 7, 2022 10am-3pm

Along with the ‘how’ of creating art, it’s important to consider the ‘why. Using the Zentangle method, you’ll explore ways to jumpstart your creativity and/or reignite the joy of simply creating. You’ll tap into mindfulness using elemental strokes and simple materials to create structured patterns that weave into a completed (palm-sized) work of art. The workshop will cover classic (black on white) tiles plus drawing on black and on tan tiles in different shapes (we will do 3 pieces). Zentangle can also be incorporated into your own art practise – as warm-ups, block-breakers, and as Zentangle Inspired Art (ZIA).
