Zentangle is a creative form of meditative drawing that has gained more popularity in recent years. The abstract technique combines simple shapes like dots, lines and curves into spontaneous and intricately structured patterns. Such activity may facilitate practitioners to relieve stress and reach a relaxed state of mindfulness. 

In this two-hour workshop, certified Zentangle teacher Henri Chan demonstrates the basic techniques of this art form and guides participants to create their own set of Zentangle postcards, taking inspiration from traditional Chinese art and design along with the cloud and wave patterns found in ancient textiles and xiqu costumes.
