Zentangle® With Us

Learn the Zentangle® Method of art with Certified Zentangle® Teacher (CZT), Bonnie Cox. This is an easy to learn art technique that is fun, relaxing and therapeutic. Once learned, it can be practiced anywhere using a wide variety of common drawing materials. In Zentangle® there are no mistakes and no eraser is needed. Artistic experience is not necessary, just a desire to enjoy creating something lovely.
This is a two part class occurring at the library on July 28 and August 4. You’ll learn basic designs on Tuesday, July 28 and continue with more advanced techniques on Tuesday, August 4. Both sessions run from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
Registration is required by July 27. Register in person or by phone (682-5578). A materials fee of $5.00 will be collected at the door, but may be paid in advance if registering in person.
