Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. In this four-week class, Cari Raboin will instruct students in the beginning steps for creating Zentangles using 3.5" x 3.5" art paper tiles, fine line pen, and pencil. A variety of patterns (called "tangles") will be taught along with how to use shading, variations on patterns, and adding enhancements. Those familiar with the zentangle method will be shown some tangle variations and other options for embellishments.

The class will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays on July 11, 18, 25, and August 1 at the Copper Country Community Arts Center (CCCAC), located at 126 Quincy Street in Hancock. Register before Tuesday, June 19, for the discounted rate of $55; after June 19 the fee is $65. Materials included. The deadline to register is Tuesday, June 26.

Call the CCCAC at 482-2333 for more information.

A few places still remain for the Basic Drawing Class at the Copper Country Community Art Center. This drawing class will explore line, shape, value, shading, and perspective with instructor Tammy Gajewski. Working with pencil, charcoal, craypas, and ink, the class will draw organic still life. Expand your mind and the size of your work or focus your mind to create detailed work. Bring a picture you find challenging or that you would like to learn how to draw. Good introduction class for anyone wanting to learn more about drawing. The class fee is $45. All materials are included.
