Zentangle® Workshop, Deb Bowyer
Introduction to the Zentangle® Method class is an approximately three-hour class (all materials included) where we will talk about the history of Zentangle®, discuss the elements of a tile, play with a few tangle patterns, shade a bit and then appreciate our art. There are no mistakes in Zentangle® art. The Zentangle® method can be used to conquer your stress and relax your mind. It has been described as yoga for the brain: we aim to demonstrate the tangle patterns and techniques in a supportive, encouraging and caring environment. Everyone will end up with a different piece of art based on their unique spin on the tangle patterns. We will display them in a mosaic format so that we can appreciate them as a group.
Artist Bio: Deb has dabbled over the years in many different mediums but most recently discovered the Zentangle® method of art and decided to become a Certified Zentangle Teacher. Deb was certified in April 2016 and has taught hundreds of people. She likes that this art is meant to be abstract as she a bit of a “perfectionist” and with this art form she don’t have to be. It’s quite liberating to say the least. Deb is thoroughly enjoying sharing this relaxing art form with others. She sells her art via her Facebook page, at local markets and a few local retail outlets. This will be her second class taught at the North Peace Cultural Centre. Deb is excited have this opportunity again and hope to be able to share this unique art method with more Fort St. John people. See you in May!
