Zentangle Art Class Every Tuesdays at 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm Any Ability welcome.

ZentangleSpokenHereZentangle Art Class is at 1:00pm and 5:00 pm open to any ability.  One time charge of $5. for a Mini Zentangle Art Kit. We will be meeting in the Upstairs Small Conference Room 

Anything is Possible One Stroke at a Time (r)

At first glance, a Zentangle creation can seem intricate and complicated. But, when you learn how it is done, you realize how simple it is . . . sort of like learning the secret behind a magic trick. Then, when you create a piece of Zentangle art, you realize how fun and engrossing the process itself is. We love presenting to a class or seminar full of people who are convinced they can’t draw the Zentangle art we show them. Then, within 15 minutes, they have easily accomplished what they thought was impossible. This is one of our favorite Zentangle moments, because then we ask, “What else do you know that you can’t do?” You can transfer that insight and experience of success and accomplishment to any life experience. Something may look complicated, but you now know that you can do it, one simple stroke at a time.
