Prismacolor colored pencils on black paper bring a neon glow to Zentangle designs. Learn several tangles that lend themselves to this coloring technique. White gel pens, colored pencils and specially textured paper will be used to create magical artwork. Previous Zentangle experience is recommended, but not required.

The class fee is $30 for CAM members, $35 for non-members. All materials provided. Zentangle books and other supplementary materials will be available for purchase. A limited number of scholarships are available for eligible teens to participate in this class. Class size: 6 min. / 16 max.

This is going to be an amazing festival, with glass blowing demonstrations, live music, a beer garden and much more!Of course, the annual Hollering Contest will be held again also. The Boat Building Center and the Tribal Hall will be open, and tours are scheduled. There will also be over 20 classic cars on display. Fun for the entire family! Thanks so much,
