Do you love to doodle? Would you like to have fun, relieve your daily stress and learn a new art form? Anyone can create a Zentangle, a method of creating complex drawings using repetitive patterns. Even if you’ve never drawn a line, you can pick up the pen and make a beautiful piece the very first time. People who don’t think they’re “creative, artistic, or talented” are always surprised to see what they can create. All materials will be provided to complete your project and will be available for sale. No drawing experience required!

Instructor: Elaine Huffman is a Certified Zentangle Teacher with 17 years teaching experience in quilting and the arts.

Cost: $25 JCC members, $30 general public
