Zentangle Art: Tree of Life Zoom Workshop with Lynda Abbot CZT
Date: Saturday, July 17
Ages: teen to adult – beginner to advanced tanglers
The “Tree of Life” is a symbol found in many cultures, religions, folklore and mythology that represents various “living things” and their connection between the living and spiritual worlds. This class will guide you to creating your very own personalized “Tree of Life” using varied patterns integrated into a tree form, adding some names, quotes or meaningful words, perhaps a little color – or not- to reflect and represent your life, your family or a special someone. The Zentangle method can decrease your stress and anxiety while letting your creative side grow. Materials required are a pen, pencil, a blending tool, and a 5×7 inch or larger paper (card stock, watercolor paper, or mixed media paper). See the materials list below for details.
