Beginning Drawing with Zentangle

ADULTS & YOUTH 16+*

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! If greater creativity and balance are among your goals, look no further than Zentangle — a type of meditation achieved through pattern-making, created by artist Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts. Each pattern is built one line at a time, organically combining simple patterns into complex zentangles in unplanned, unexpected ways that grow, change and unfold on the page as you enter an immersive state of flow. You will learn the fundamentals of art and basic drawing techniques including line, contour, value, texture, form and shapes. The skills you will learn in this class set a foundation for other mediums. Drawing reduces stress, improves brain function, creative thinking and problem solving skills. Anyone can draw and create a Zentangle!  Kids ages 7-16 welcome with parents!  This is a great opportunity to nurture your child’s creativity!
