Zentangle® Club

zentangle club3rd Thursday of each month, starting February 18, from 6 to 7:30 pm. Cost is $15.
Join us for Zentangle Club! Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun method of creating beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It increases focus and creativity, and provides artistic delight along with an increased sense of personal well-being. We’ll hold one session each month led by Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) Patricia Carney, where you’ll learn new patterns using traditional Zentangle supplies. During most months, there will be an additional session where Artbeat staff will be on hand offer Zentangle-inspired art (ZIA), using various materials and working from the patterns taught that month in the CZT-led class. Attend them all or just a few, starting any time throughout the schedule. Beginners and practiced “tanglers” alike are welcome. Open to adults, teens, and children under 13 with a participating adult.

Where in the Square?

Pick up a Passport at this Saturday’s Town Day in Arlington Center, or at Artbeat anytime afterward. Then take an interactive journey through Capitol Square,

matching “top attractions” with the corresponding businesses. Ask the businesses to stamp your passport, then bring your completed passport to Artbeat to be entered to win monthly and grand prize drawings. TAKE YOUR TIME – the passport game starts in September and runs throughout the holiday season, so you’ll have plenty of time to find all the special goods and services that make Capitol Square such a great place to be.
