Zentangle is a easy to learn, fun and relaxing way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. This art is non-representational and unplanned so you can focus on each stroke and not worry about the result. It is proven to help decrease stress and anxiety while helping to increase focus and self-esteem.

In this E-Zentangle workshop presented via zoom by ceritified Zentangle teacher, Mimi Topping, you will learn some simple strokes and patterns in the shape of a snowman.

Zentangle Kits will be used during program. Please call the Library at 732-521-5000 x116 to schedule your curbside pickup of materials.
