What is Zentangle? It is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, simple-to-understand method to create beautiful images by drawing shapes and lines to create repetitive patterns, created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. Even if you are convinced you are not an artist or don’t have any drawing experience, you can create a Zentangle. 

Not only a mode of self-expression, Zentangle has benefits similar to the effects of meditation, such as increased focus and creativity as well as a sense of personal well being and relaxation. The Zentangle method is enjoyed worldwide by people of all different skills, interests and ages. Anyone can do it!

Join us at the Bay Village Branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library on Feb. 4  at 7 p.m. when Cathy Zavodny, a certified teacher for Zentangle, will present how to make Zentangle Valentine cards. This program is for adults only and registration is required as seating is limited. 

Register online at or call 440-871-6392. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Bay Village Branch of Cuyahoga County Public Library.
