Zentangle ® is an easy-to-learn, “drawing as meditation” activity where you repeat decorative patterns and intuitively create art. It does not require artistic training. If you can draw a line or a circle, you can draw a tangle. This gathering is not an official instruction class but rather an opportunity to practice tangling in an informal group setting. Bring your own drawing pen, pencil and smooth paper or feel free to bring whatever drawing tools you enjoy using. Also, you are welcome to bring your own favorite cup of tea to sip while tangling in a relaxed atmosphere. This group is geared for adults and older teens (16+), and meets on the 4th Tuesday of every month, 6:30pm-7:45pm, in the library’s community room. Beginners to experts are welcome.
