 **Basic Zentangle Series : This is a 4 week series of classes, on alternating Saturdays, to give you a firm basis on you tangling experience. You can attend as many of these classes as you wish. The only prerequisite is that you have attended a Basic class with me or another CZT. The classes are as follows: February 4 - Grid tangles, February 18 - Border tangles, March 4 - Organic tangles, and March 18 - Free form tangles. These classes all meet at Artworks from 2 - 4 PM.   In each class you will learn approximately 8 tangles and will complete a tile of your own design, using the tangles that you have learned so far. The cost structure for this is a little different.  All class fees are payable to Artworks Gallery. If you register for the Basic Zentangle class and this series and pay before the Basic class you can take the whole series (5 classes) for $145.
