A Zentangle Weekend Journey into the Renaissance

For everyone; some experience with the Zentangle method is recommended but not required.

Begin a new chapter in your Zentangle practice—an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns—and learn new ways to enhance your tangling experience.

Join Molly Hollibaugh and Martha Huggins, daughters of Zentangle founders Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, and embark on a journey deep into the Renaissance technique of tangling. Taking inspiration from notable artists of the Renaissance era, in this program you

  • Focus on drawing on neutral colored surfaces using black and brown inks
  • Learn to create illusions of intense light and shadow with graphite and chalk
  • Produce beautiful patterns that come alive on the paper using age old techniques in a new way
  • Explore how we experience and benefit from the Zentangle Method even after our pen leaves the paper.

Travel back in time and add some new tools to your tangling toolbox as you discuss contrast and finding that balance of light and dark in your tangled art and explore how that metaphorically trickles in to your lives. A special guest appearance by Rick and Maria is sure to take this Zentangle weekend beyond words and into tangling bliss.

Note Tuition includes all supplies needed for this journey.
