Quarterly Creative Encounter Retreat
"Anything is possible one stroke at a time.TM" -Rick and Maria Thomas, founders of Zentangle®
Zentangle® is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It increases focus and creativity, and provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well-being. During this creative encounter, you will have an opportunity to learn Zentangle® patterns as we explore this creative form of meditation. We will work on different sizes of tiles including round tiles to create Zendalas. When you create in a Zentangle® way, you create beautiful pieces of art that can deliberately transform a mood, a focus, a state of mind. The use of these simple deliberate strokes can be beautiful, mesmerizing and often surprising. Like a Japanese Tea Ceremony, when you create Zentangle® art you also create a personal environment. Come and surprise yourself!
Everyone is welcome. No artistic skills required. Supplies included.
