About This Class

Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) Sacil Armstrong, aka bohemiangirl, guides you through the process to create a freehand mandala. This class is perfect for people who think they can't draw. If you can hold a pen and make a dot, line, S, C and an orb (not a perfect circle), then you can create a mandala!

Class supplies are simple: blank paper and a felt tip pen. Use what you have on hand! Feel free to take it a step further and color your completed mandalas.

Share your basic and colored mandalas on Instagram. Tag #mandalamischief and @mycre8vmischief in your images.

One of the simplest but best classes I took here. You learn a skill to relax and have fun.

Adventures in art

It's relaxing just watching the teacher draw. Love how the teacher introduced the basic principles and shapes quickly so I can get started.
It is relaxing.

Creative Mischief Maker & CZT

I am an accidental artist. Growing up, I always wanted to be creative, but I didn't think I had any talent. In high school, I started doing cross stitch as a stress reliever, but I didnt consider it creative because I was following someone else's pattern. In college, I started beading and gained a whole new perception of myself! I loved weaving with tiny seed beads and making abstract beaded tapestries. 

Fast forward several years, and as much as I want to paint or draw, I still can barely draw a stick figure. Then a friend introduced me to Zentangle! I looked on YouTube and devoured books and felt so artistic. When I took a Zentangle class, I found out I had only been doodling! I loved the Zentangle Method so much that I flew to Providence, RI to be trained as a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT).

Now I combine my love of Zentangle with other forms of art and play, and I teach other people that we all have a creative side. We just need to let go of the fear of mistakes and make a little creative mischief!
