These introductory classes introduce a “Taste” of the subject matter and are taught using the Zentangle style of teaching:
~ Step by step concepts are introduced gradually, and build upon each other
~ For the first piece, steps are modelled by the instructor, making it easy for students to follow as they gain understanding
~ As the class progresses, the instructor continues to model, but in a more open way. Students are encouraged to begin to develop their own designs and patterns at this point.
By modelling simple steps one at a time, the techniques taught in these classes are great for people of all ages and perfect for people who feel that they have no “artistic abililty”. As students gain confidence, they begin to venture and experiment, and begin to create truly unique, personal art.
