Senior Center to host class on repurposing gift cards


Hate to throw away those beautiful greeting cards you receive? If so, please join us at the Pagosa Springs Senior Center on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 1 p.m. for a free class to learn how to make a gift box out of a greeting card.
No reservations or art talent are needed. If attending and you have a card(s) you would like to use, bring it(them) along. All other materials will be provided at no charge. These boxes are great for small items such as jewelry, gift cards or money.
The instructor will be Denise Fisk, former art teacher in Iowa.
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 class instructor will be Roberta Strickland, CZT. She can be reached at 946-4582 or 264-2167.
The next class will be held Nov. 13 at 1 p.m.
