Zentangle™is a method of drawing patterns to create beautiful images. It is the process of simple lines, drawn repetitively, one stroke at a time, without a planned outcome, without expectations, quietly enjoying the pen marking the paper mindfully focussing on just that action.

This 5 week class will teach you simple and effective ways to draw intricate pieces of abstract art. Each week 3-4 new tangles (patterns) will be taught along with techniques to enhance the drawing using a graphite pencil, white chalk pencil and tortillion. You will complete 10 small drawings and have a resource library of future ideas to implement your tangling into other art forms and mediums.

Who can register: Adults living in North Etobicoke, Etibicoke; who has lived experience of mental illness and/or addiction

About the Instructor
Yvonne was instilled with a love of patterns and colour from a very early age. She never really put away her crayons and graduated with a B.A in Visual Art from the University of Guelph '95 and became a Certified Zentangle Teacher in 2013 in Rhode Island, USA. She has spent the last 3 decades practicing and playing with line and colour in her home studio, in school programs, corporate retreats, private events and hotel desks around the world as she is also a Flight Attendant. Her inspirations come from the places and people she meets both on the ground and in the air. Yvonne is passionate about the creative process and Zentangle allows her to create anytime and anywhere with just a pen and paper.

In 2017 Yvonne suffered a brain injury that changed her perspective on life, time management, self-care and mental health. She spent 14 months with a Neuro-optometrist re-gaining her visual processing functions. Throughout her recovery, it became apparent that making art was integral to her brain finding space to rest and re-generate. Yvonne’s experience re-enforced her passion for the creative process to not only express oneself but also to take care of oneself. FB/IG @ywestart
