THE INTRODUCTION Anything is Possible……one stroke at a time!". This is the Zentangle motto. Zentangle is a easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. There are no mistakes, no "right" way. Barb is a Zentangle CZT (Certified Zentangle Instructor), so each workshop will cover the history, applications, and the steps of creating an original Zentangle tile (3 1/2" by 3 1/2"). Students will leave the workshop with two tiles of their own making, plus receive an on-the-go kit & the knowledge to create more tiles on their own time. Come with an open mind and a desire to view life from a different perspective. We all have an artist hiding inside us - come and discover yours. Appropriate for all ages and no experience required.
