This two-hour class is a Zentangle® exploration on all things natural. Class will cover a brief intro to the Zentangle Method, and will explore patterns found in nature. Students will first learn on small paper tiles, and then progress to creating patterns on rocks. This class invites all levels and requires no artistic experience. Learn the skills to take home and practice on your own! Teacher will provide paper, rocks, finishing spray and some specialty pens to share. Students should bring their own pens and rocks.
The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. Anyone, any age, with any – or no – art experience can tangle!
