Sunday April 6th 1-3 PM PM Zen-Tangle - Learn the Basics

We are so excited that we have talked local artist, Nancy Walker, into teaching here at Photo Scraps!  You will be too when you see the Zentangle-like art classes she is working on.

Nancy Walker, born and raised in Maryland, has spent much of her life in pursuit of various artistic challenges associated with drawing, painting, mixed media, pottery, fused glass, stained glass, and photography.  She also creates detailed Mendalas using pen and ink, which have been displayed and sold in several galleries. Zentangle-like qualities have been incorporated into many of these works.

Nancy graduated with a B.A. Degree in Art - Illustration/Photography and Ceramics from Towson State University where she was the recipient of a Student Grant, completed her Honors Thesis work, and graduated from their School of Art with Honors.  

Since moving to Eldersburg, MD, Nancy has taught art through the Maryland Institute of Art, the Carroll County Arts Council (CCAC), and other pottery studios. Through her home studio, she has taught various group classes and workshops over the last 20 years. Several of her students are now professional artists or are in college pursuing professional careers in art.

Sunday April 6th 1-3 PM PM
Zen-Tangle - Learn the Basics 

Turn drawings into artistic design, no "Artistic" talent needed. You don't have to be a perfectionist either. It can be done anywhere.  Embellish scrapbooks, journals, cards. There is no end to the creativity.  Zen-Tangling is relaxing and meditative. In this class, you will learn basic design concepts and patterns to create two 3"x3" trade cards. Bring a sketchbook or journal to keep class information and new patterns organized.   You will receive the pen set as part of your class fee.  $32

You can build on these patterns and other multimedia concepts in the more advanced future classes, Zen-Tangle 2 and Zen-Tangle 3.  In these two class you will learn more patterns and create beautiful projects using stencils, stamps, pan pastels and other mixed media. It is a lot of fun and very addictive!

In future classes Nancy will teach you how to draw tangles using stencils and stamps.
