Zendala & Mosaic Classes at the ZenDen in Mentor!!!

Zendalas - An Introduction to Working "In the Round" 
A Zendala is the Zentangle® version of a Mandala. The practice of creating Mandalas is a very old tradition in many cultures. Intended as a meditation tool to many, working in a circle has a very different, flowing dynamic. When combined with the process of repetitive pattern drawing, the induced meditative state takes your creativity to a whole new level. Come relax and experience this process “in the round” while creating beautiful, intricate, abstract art.
The skills developed through this art form extend beyond the end result of a finished piece of abstract art. Remove creative blocks, induce a state of mindfulness, increase focus, experience relaxation, build self-esteem, indulge in self-expression and bolster confidence.
This class is a structured approach to working "In the Round" on “pre-strung” Zendala tiles. We will be creating our Zendalas in the traditional black ink on round, white tiles. Come and learn some new tangles, add shading, create and enjoy!
PREREQUISITE: Zentangle 101 class with a Certified Zentangle Teacher is Required. Zentangle 201 class is Highly Recommended.
Class fee $35. 2 to 2-1/2 hours. Includes Zendala tiles. (3 pre-strung, 2 blank). Bring your own pens and sketchbook.

Time: 2-4:30 pm
Location: Lisa Ruschman's Studio - The ZenDen in Mentor, Ohio
