Draw the Shades is a great follow up class for those who have taken Zentangle Basics and want to refine their shading skills. All you need it your Basics kit and some tiles or good paper (ask me if you aren’t sure). With a little practice, you’ll Draw the Shades with flair — there’s a world to explore in the gray area!

Prerequisite: Zentangle Basics is a prerequisite for this class. Contact Rhonda if you’d like a private or semi-private online Basics lesson first.

AIZIA – Alhambra-Inspired ZIA

The Alhambra is a palace in Granada, Spain, known for its beautiful architecture and gardens, among other things. In this online class, (originally taught by Inge Frasch, CZT), we will create a ZIA piece reminiscent of the Alhambra using a string created by Marieke Sanchez, CZT.

Together we will transfer the string onto paper and then explore various tangles to fill in the spaces. You can create a gorgeous piece in black and white, or use your favourite medium to add colour. We’ll have time to get a good start on the tile and you’ll be able to finish it on your own confidently and be able to do more.

Prerequisite: This class is offered only to students who have already taken a class with me. But even if you’ve only taken Zentangle Basics or Art Bites you will love it! And if you’ve been itching to add colour to your Zentangle work, this is the perfect opportunity. Contact me if you have any questions.

Supply list:

  • Your starter kit (01 pen, pencil, tortillon)
  • Black PN pen
  • White 10 gelly roll pen
  • Good quality art paper (watercolour or dry medium) roughly 7.8” square (19-20cm) or larger
  • Your favourite medium to add your own touch

Class materials kit (PN pen, paper and #10 white gelly roll) available for $15 –  pickup only

Upon registration, you’ll receive and email with the Zoom invitation and further details.

About the paper: You’ll want a nice quality thick paper with a little bit of tooth.  140lb watercolour paper works nicely, but if you’re not using wet medium, a dry media art paper would be fine.

Contact me by e mail if you have any questions about materials needed.
