Weave Your Own Resilient Web
The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, meditative way to explore and create by drawing structured patterns using a simple step-by-step approach. As a result, beautiful artwork emerges—you don’t have to be an experienced artist!
Embark on an artistic exploration with Martha Huggins and Molly Hollibaugh, daughters of Zentangle founders Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, as you weave your resilient web, gathering confidence and growth along the way.
During this experiential weekend, we dive into thematic Zentangle philosophies and play with carefully curated materials that teach you to build composition with tangles through layering and perspective. We use unique techniques to lace tangles together with strength and harmony, creating an extraordinary web of creativity.
As we dive into the unique marks each one of us has to make, we unravel the philosophical connections these artistic perspectives weave into our daily lives and
- Renew the creative spirit
- Experience increased focus
- Relieve stress
- Learn how to apply Zentangle philosophies to everyday situations
- Experience gratitude and appreciation for the creative space and surroundings.
Attendees receive a bounty of Zentangle supplies to use throughout the class and bonus tools to take home to continue their practice.
Immerse yourself in drawing/painting, meditation and mindfulness exercises, and creative exercises throughout the weekend.
Join us for a transformative experience where every stroke tells a story, and creativity takes center stage!
This program is open to everyone.
