About This Class


  • Do you think you can't draw or could you use a boost?
  • Would you like to learn how to draw beautiful mandalas?
  • Are you drawn to patterns and abstract line art?
  • Do you need some relaxing creative time in your daily life?

If your answer to at least one of the above questions is YES, this might be the lesson for you!

Whether you are a beginner or a skilled artist looking for a way to relax you will learn what the Zentangle® Method* is and how to apply its principles and methodology in creating beautiful mandalas. Experienced artists will certainly feel more comfortable finishing this project but the beginners can also do it - just take a peek at the project section to see the evidence. :) 

The basic supplies needed for the project are:

  • Paper or a small-sized paper tile
  • Graphite pencil
  • Line marker (suggested size 0.1 to 0.3 mm)
  • Blending stump

But if you want to have even more fun, you can draw on a darker paper and use white pen and pencil for highlights or add some colors of your choice.

Follow me on Instagram to see hundreds of drawings, process videos or check out other links to see what's new. 

Make sure to download the attachments, join the project and come back with the project photos, questions or comments. I'd love to hear from you!
