Variety of events on tap at Senior Center


Zentangle is a form of relaxation using easy-to-learn patterns, drawn by focusing on single lines one at a time. The method focuses on simple elemental strokes that anyone can draw, regardless of creative ability, and allows the mind and body to release stress while creating beautiful images.
The instructor will be Roberta Strickland, CZT, who can be reached at 946-4582 or 264-2167. The next class will be June 26 at 1 p.m. in the dining room at the Pagosa Springs Senior Center.
