Join us for this inspiring series of workshops or just one workshop! Sasha, an educator, artist, and color connoisseur, will guide you through various slow-drawing exercises to boost your design confidence and expand your knowledge of art as a mindful practice. Zen Doodle (or Tangle) is known to many artists and craftivists to create structured designs by drawing various patterns. Some people call it slow-drawing because of its mindful nature.
Whatever you want to call it, the result is a calming, relaxing, and satisfying process of drawing with pen and watercolor to create remarkable small pieces that can become greeting cards, bookmarks, or texture swatches for larger paintings. This workshop will be a delicious hors-d’oeuvre for your watercolor mindful painting practice! Join our creative community! New designs are introduced every week.
