Get Zen & Get Tangled & Untangled at The Wab

Use Zentangle to increase confidence and focus. This contemplative method of creating intricate and beautiful patterns simply uses nothing but pen and paper. Instructor, Nysha Oren Nelson will teach you the basics of this relaxing art form as well as how to use the tangles to interact in your art pieces. It’s an amazing way to spend an evening or afternoon.

We have classes:  1 Oct 2014 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM &  1 Oct 2014 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
