More about this course

Greetings and welcome to my class! As some of you know, I am a Certified Zentangle® Teacher, and although I haven't been doing much tangling lately, I thought that artists would enjoy creating some cool backgrounds for their creations. Those of you who like to tangle or doodle on paper can print the backgrounds and draw with a pen, and those of you who do it digitally can draw directly in Procreate. 

Remember you can post questions under the Discussions tab.
