Zentangle® is a 'No Mistake' zone!  

"Though Zentangle art may appear intricate and complicated, the method is actually quite simple... not to mention fun and engrossing. “We love presenting to a class or seminar full of people who are convinced they can't draw the Zentangle art we show them. Within 15 minutes, they have easily accomplished what they thought was impossible.” 

– Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts, founders of Zentangle®

I invite you to slow-down, breathe, focus and let 'one stroke at a time' be your mantra.  I will teach you the 'magic' behind the magician's (in this case, artist's) tricks and give you the confidence to create while you meditate!

 Certified Zentangle Teacher, Patti Shaffner offers Zentangle classes in the Northwest Indiana, Southwest Michigan and the Greater Chicagoland area for groups of all sizes, ranging from private lessons, small art groups, and educational classrooms, to corporate team-building settings and conventions.
