“The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. “Zentangle” is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. The tagline is ‘Anything is possible, one stroke at a time’. Participants will learn how to draw some of the original Zentangle basic designs in this first level class, one stroke at a time, as demonstrated by the instructor. We will learn about the core concepts of the designs, and students will learn more about subsequent designs from the 1000’s of designs now available.
Date: Sunday, June 25
Cost: $45 with a $12 material fee paid directly to the instructor.
