Zentangle classes are taught by Certified Zentangle Teachers. These are people who have gone through a special certification class taught by the founders of Zentangle, Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. The classes can be taught to a group (recommended) or individuals. They can be one class or a series of classes where the student learns more advanced procedures each class. All the materials required are provided for the class unless otherwise indicated.
Anyone can learn to tangle! No artistic ability is required. If you can draw a line, a dot, a curve. . . you can do Zentangle! It’s really true that “Anything is possible, one stroke at a time.”
