WATA Event - Zentangles
Thank you to all who attended our September Zentangles event! Members and friends attended "The Art of Zentangles" event at Artist and Display on September 23, 2013. Taught by certified Zentangle instructors Don Mc Collum & Joyce Block, members learned about this art form of drawing repetitive patterns as a way of meditation, focus, relaxing, and building creative confidence. Most importantly, fun was had and a new skill learned!
Event suggestions always welcome, please contact WATA Program Chair, Noel at email@example.com with your ideas.
