MORNING SESSIONS - 9.30am - midday - Primary students (gr3-6)
AFTERNOON SESSIONS - 12.30pm until 3pm - Secondary Students

During the  morning class,  students start by learning how to form the patterns that are common in zentangling and how to set up a grid to create a zentangle.  Simple and effective designs can be created. Often young students like to 'Zentangle' the first letter of their name.  
The afternoon classes can explore different patterns of zentangling and ways to form design shapes (such as thoughtful use of positive and negative space) to create individual images on a subject of interest to the student. 
Designs can be used for a variety of decorative & design purposes.
