Zentangle Wellness Workshops

Looking to reduce stresscalm your bodybe creative and have fun? All Foothill and De Anza students, faculty, and staff are invited to Zentangle gatherings this Fall.

The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. The recommended supplies are a micron, gel, or felt tip pen (ball point not recommended); some plain paper, bullet journal or 3.5 inch square tile; a graphite pencil; and a blending stump or q-tip — but anything you have at home is great.

These wellness workshops are co-hosted by Foothill College Psychological Services, Foothill Wellness Ambassadors and Foothill Project Hope Club.
