CraftArtEdu - Save Big on New Zentangle Classes!

Tangling In Color!
I'm so pleased to announce that Geneviève Crabe has just finished a brand new class! It's all about making Zentangle-inspired artwork using colored pencils.

Geneviève has been a certified Zentangle instructor for over three years, but she's been an artist all her life. She believes that "creativity... is something that all of us learn and exercise in our lives." I wholeheartedly agree!

To help you get started on this relaxing activity, enjoy special prices on both of Geneviève's classes through Tuesday. Stock up!

I'm ready to grab a cup of coffee, get out my colored pencils and tangle!

Tangling with Colored Pencils with Geneviève Crabe

When you think of Zentangle, structured patterns in black and white probably come to mind. In this class, Geneviève takes it a step further: you'll learn how to create Zentangle-inspired art that is rich with color!

Using the basic principles of Zentangle, you'll expand your options by adding color with both colored and water-soluble pencils. You will learn so much in this comprehensive class: it's two hours, four parts, and filled with instructional video clips! 

In part one, you'll learn about the supplies you need and techniques for getting the best results from your colored pencils.

Part two is lots of fun and filled with colorful projects to help you learn foundational techniques including a:
  • Monogram – This technique is great for greeting cards!
  • Feather stencil  – Here you'll learn the impressed line technique that adds wonderful texture to your drawing.
  • Bird on a branch – Animals are a popular subject for Zentangle-inspired art. This fanciful bird includes several patterns and you'll practice your techniques.
In part three, you'll learn how to use colored paper for shading and highlighting while creating the Geometric Abstract drawing. You'll also learn how to create thirteen tangle patterns!
In part four, you'll learn about the basics of using water-soluble colored pencils and then draw a magical Tangled Garden using those techniques – step-by-step.
Once you complete this class, you'll not only be able to create your own Zentangle-inspired art, but you will experience hours and hours of relaxed, creative enjoyment!

Here's what students say about Geneviève and Drawing Mandalas!

"I watched the class for the first time yesterday, and I think my brain literally exploded! Being an artist who paints on silk, I'm always looking for new inspiration, and this class CERTAINLY fit the bill!"

"My dear hubby gave me your class as a Christmas pressy, and I'm oh so happy! Your class is wonderful! I devoured every second twice already!" 

“I loved this class and have spent many hours on many, many days drawing mandalas.”  

"If you like to 'tangle,' then this class is for you. Genevieve takes a nice pace with the construction of mandala frames. The course is well-organized and thorough." 


Drawing Mandalas with Geneviève Crabe

Mandalas are everywhere and they have a fascinating history! Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning "circle" or "completion" and is recognized for its deep spiritual meaning and representation of wholeness.

In this comprehensive class, Geneviève walks you step-by-step through the creation of both an eight- and twelve-section mandala. Draw mandalas for:

  • relaxation and inspiration
  • brainstorming and creative thought
  • stress relief (it's so calming!)
  • practicing hand-eye coordination
  • FUN!
Once you've created your first one, you will be hooked! The circular designs of mandalas are endlessly fascinating with endless variations.
