Welcome to Tangled Up In Art. I am Cris Letourneau, your hostess. I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher, artist, and author. I love art and helping others rediscover the childlike joy of making art.

Want to be less stressed and feel more creative?

Do you have 5 minutes?

If so, I can help!

If you can work a pencil, you can learn the process of Zentangle. I regularly teach classes in Central Ohio, but love to travel. Hire me for your next retreat, seminar, or team-building meeting.

My Zentangle classes are relaxing, fun, and guaranteed.

About my books About my classes About Zentangle

I have been tangling for 3 years and have also found myself in a bit of a rut, then I discovered your 2 books !!!  I don’t say this lightly….. they are awesome and you are a gifted teacher.  Not everyone who is good at something is able to break down that process in a way that excites and makes students able to “get it”. … books like yours are a class act.

Her writing is clear and direct, accessible to even “non-art” people, and friendly without being condescending.

Keep writing books. Yours have taught me to create instead of just copying.

– Ellen F

It was great! I’m so glad I came. I’m enjoying using what I learned in your class.

I thoroughly enjoyed your instruction & learning new tangles, as well as the exchanging of ideas & techniques. I can’t wait for my next one!
