​Explore the mandala using acrylic paint and a point to point technique leading to that same repetitious motion to create a relaxation one dot at a time. We'll investigate using different tools that you have laying around the house to accomplish this work of art. Sure, there are special tools that you can buy, but why when you already have tools laying around that work? This piece will surely be worthy of the wall afterwards!


​3 Hours / $35.00 (101 NOT Required)

In this class we will be working on a bit larger scale (6"x6") fabriano tiepolo paper to create our own mandala. Once our tangling is complete you will have the option of adding color or letting the black and white speak through graphite shading.

In this fun, whimsical class we will be exploring the lighthearted Dr. Seuss take on nature. Bugs, caterpillars, butterflies and dragon flies all surrounded by the whimsy of bright colors and bold lines on an opus tile (10.5 x 10.5). If you have a special Dr. Seuss quote that speaks to you, bring it along, otherwise I'll have some printed out as well. Also, if you have a favorite way to add color bring that along as well. I will have options in the studio to share too.

Explore the artistic potentials of using coffee, tea or even wine as a creative medium! All those napkin rings from our morning coffee or tea are just calling for some artistic expression!

Expanding on the organics class, this class is an exploration of tangles that look like flowers, leaves, grass, trees, etc. You will learn many tangles and then be set free to grow your garden on a large Opus tile (10.5 x 10.5). I will also offer suggestions on adding color if you feel so inclined to explore beyond the black and white of the first expression. You'll most likely not be able to complete your tile, however you will leave with enough information and details to successfully complete it at home.

​Those winter blues can take a hold of us sometimes. Get above the curve and come find a little Zen during the doldrums of the winter season.

​I always say, if you didn't know patience before Zentangle, you'll learn quickly after having to color in drama with an 01 pen tip. Well, this might top it. We'll be stippling (adding teeny, tiny dots) our tangled expressions one dot at a time. The outcome is amazing, but patience is definitely in order! If you don't think you have patience, that's fine, most of you didn't think you could draw a straight line either, and you CAN...give it a try!
​You won't be disappointed!

Quilling is an art that has ebbed and flowed throughout history since the Renaissance. Gaining popularity once again, quilling and Zentangle seem to be a great fit together. In some ways the rolled, folded, scrolled dynamic of quilling is almost a 3D representation of some of our tangles! They add a great pop and interest to the flat Zentangle expression and is oh so fun! Come explore these two art methods and create your own 8x8 singular expression of Zen Quilling.

​Plan on getting a little bit messy in this class! Together we will walk through the steps of dying our own silk scarf. After the coloring is to your liking, we will be setting for permanency and tangling our artistic expressions right on the silk!

​Not your typical watercolor class for sure! Using watercolor to create our string, we will then build upon that flow with tangles and tools to create a deep expression of color. Nondirectional, nonrepresentational at its best, yet oh so cool how this technique unfolds!
