with Toni Johnson, Wednesday, Jan. 19 from 1-3 p.m. at the Arts Center -- Zentangle  is an easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns, called “tangles.” Tangles are formed using a combination of dots, lines, curves, and orbs. When several tangles are used together, a non-representational, unplanned, intricate design can be formed. Zentangle art is a great way to be creative without feeling like you have to be able to draw well. Learn and practice new tangles in every class. $20 members, $24 not-yet-members.
