Round and Round in Delft   Susan Nutting

Saturday, May 18

Inspired by fellow Certified Zentangle® Teachers, this project uses orbs and spheres filled with simple designs, and depth added by shading, to create a monochromatic piece of art-in-blue!

Zentangle® is a relaxing, easy to learn method of creating beautiful images by using simple structured patterns. Artists and non-artists alike enjoy the simple elegance of putting pen to paper and find that it enhances creativity and stress relief. Prior basic Zentangle® experience is encouraged, but not required.
