Create a piece of art in every class!

Think you can’t draw or aren’t good at visual art? Need a way to release stress and relax daily? Then this class is for you!

Each pattern is built one line at a time, combining simple patterns into complex zentangles in unplanned, unexpected ways that grow, change and unfold as you enter an immersive state of flow.
