Experience a wonderful and creative activity to do with your child! Zentangle® inspired, Zen Line Drawing opens up techniques of design and drawing. It is a freeing experience and enjoyed by kids and adults. Using pen and paper to create lines that become 3-D, move and inspire is both meditative and exciting at the same time. While it appears to be difficult, it all becomes amazingly simple when designs are deconstructed and then recreated. It's a great way to de-stress, focus, and meditate all while creating a unique piece of art. You and your child will walk away with an art form you can continue to create together. One registration covers both adult and child.
