SDBG Class   Introduction to Zentangle Art
Method Class

Saturday, September 23, 2 pm – 4 pm

If you have been intimated by art in the past, this is your class.  Let Certified Zentangle Teacher, Janet Masey, introduce you to the concept of Zentangle Art Method.  If you can draw a circle and straight line, then you can “tangle”.  You will learn the history of how this amazing, unique, one of a kind art method  was designed and start your Zentangle journey.   Great family class (ages 10 and up).  A class that tangles together, stays connected.  Mini kit will be provided at class.

Watercolor Botanical Drawing
Sunday, October 8
9:30 am – 3:30 pm

All levels welcome!

Drawing is seeing without knowing. We have all of these symbols stuck in our heads for shapes but it’s not what we see in front of us. Break away from that brain stuff and learn how to see in a new way- a mindful, observational way. Connect the lines with confidence and leave those doubts behind! We’ll work with pencils to develop lines and values on paper and develop watercolor washes over the pencil botanical drawings.  Learn all about those art -speak terms like values, light direction, contour, and negative space. Now is the time to reach out for that pencil and draw!

Cost: Member $80, non-member $93.
Supply list will be sent at time of registration.
