The McMillan Arts Centre will be offering more zentangle classes starting next week.

Zentangle classes in Parksville

All courses are $85 for six weeks or $75 for returning students

Rhonda Roy, a certified zentagle teacher, will be offering three different zentangle circles starting next week.

On Wednesdays starting Oct. 19 from 4-6 p.m. is zentagle for ages seven to 12. On Thursdays starting Oct. 20 from 4-6 p.m. is zentangle for ages 13 and up.

Starting Nov. 4 , there will be a weekly zentangle class for adults and youth running from 1-3 p.m.

All classes will be held at the MacMillan Arts Centre (133 McMillan St., Parksville). All courses are $85 for six weeks or $75 for returning students. Materials are included.

Zentagle circles are designed to get people started in zentangle and keep them going. The weekly two-hour sessions provide philosophy and the basic idea of zentangle which gives people more patterns, ideas and resources to followup on their own.

The zentangle method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.  The process is mindful meditation. By focusing on one stroke at a time, the brain becomes focused on the present, and as complex designs emerge from simple lines, the act of drawing becomes a way to recharge.  Even people who think they can’t draw are amazed at what they create.  Some experienced artists use zentangle as a warm-up tool before working on their art projects.  Zentangle appeals to all ages and all ability levels.

Tanglers who are looking for ways to incorporate zentangle into their Christmas projects are invited to register for A Zentangle Christmas workshop at the MAC on Nov. 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The workshop is $85 for the day. People are asked to bring their basic kit, but all other supplies will be provided.

Certified teachers Roy and Jerryann Haggart will be teaming up to offer the Christmas-themed day of zentangle inspired art projects.
