A relaxing art form filled with unique, intricate patterns and design, Zentangle increases focus and creativity, while providing artistic satisfaction along with an elevated sense of personal well-being. Highlights of this event:
 
  • Meet the founders of Zentangle, Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts, authors of The Book of Zentangle (Zentangle Inc., 2012), who will share their artwork, inspiration and expertise. Also, attendees will have an opportunity to purchase the book and have it autographed by the authors.
 
  • Watch live demonstrations of this meditative art form by Certified Zentangle Teachers (CZT) from the surrounding community.
 
  • Meet USJ’s own Dr. Meredith Yuhas, contributor to the Joy of Zentangle: Drawing Your Way to Increased Creativity, Focus and Well-Being (Design Originals, Nov. 2012). Yuhas along with USJ Student Allyson Cooper ’13, CZT were the first to conduct research on this form of mindfulness.
 
In addition, a wide selection of Zentangle products will be available for sale; refreshments will be served. Join us!
