Next Steps to Renaissance Zentangle®

This course will introduce how the Zentangle® Method and components of the Renaissance drawing technique come together. Students will become familiar with the techniques that will give their work that recognizable iconic drawing style look and feel. Using the paper as a neutral starting point, the Renaissance artist would use white pencil or paint to work towards light or to create highlights and then use black ink and graphite to work towards dark or create shading. During this class, students will be working on Zentangle tan-colored tiles and use brown, black and white Micron pens to work the surface, and continue to create shadow and highlight with graphite and white charcoal pencils. Materials included.
