$ 150  

Imagine making jewelry on paper (no hammers or torches or drills needed). In this class we will explore creating our own beautiful Zen Gems and then learn how to incorporate those into our Zentangle® Inspired Art. There are numerous ways to create the Gems and we will experiment with several methods during class, including using colored pencils, watercolor pencils, markers, Inktense pencils, and Twinkling H20s. Each student will find the method that they love best and then use it to create a beautiful piece of art.
An Intro to Zentangle basics class is recommended but not required. We will review some basics during the class, but will primarily focus on the creating our beautiful Gems.

The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. "Zentangle" is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. Learn more at zentangle.com.

Kit fee of $15 payable to instructor at beginning of class includes:
use of instructors supplies (papers, pencils, markers, blenders, etc), as well as the supplies you need for the class to create your own Gems art.
All supplies are included, however feel free to bring any of your own favorite pencils, markers, blenders, etc that you may want to use.
