Introduction to Zentangle Aug 17th 6:30 -8pm

Join us for a night of relaxation. Certified Zentangle instructor, Lori Champine will be your guide to the art of Zentangle.

The term Zentangle can be broken down into two words: Zen & Tangle. Zen is a state of mind where any emotion or thought does not bind you. The created patterns are referred to as “tangles” and are mixtures of dots, lines, basic curves and orbs. These shapes are the ‘elemental strokes’ of a Zentangle art piece.

All materials will be provided.  Registration is required.  This program is meant for people ages 14 years and older.
