Join your child for a wonderful and creative morning of Zentangle®-inspired, Zen Line Drawing.  Both kids and adults enjoy this freeing experience that opens up techniques of design and drawing. Using pen and paper to create lines that become 3-D, move and inspire is both meditative and exciting at the same time.
