Intro to Zentangle

Instructor: Kim Herman
Looking for a way to express your creative side, unwind from stress, focus your thoughts or just have fun?  Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns.  It is a fascinating new art form that is fun and relaxing. Zentangle provides artistic satisfaction and increases focus and creativity.  No prior training or drawing skills are needed - if you can hold a pen, you can create a Zentangle (even if you feel you are not at all artistic). Class fee includes materials.  Note:  Zentangles are created on a 3 1/2 inch square piece of art paper - if you wear reading glasses, please bring them to class. The Zentangle art form and method were created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas.  Zentangle is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc.  Learn more at:

Refresh Your Focus: Digital Photography Workshop

Instructor: Lauren Keim
Feeling a little rusty on the basics of your camera functions? Is your camera gathering dust in the closet or your camera bag? If you've taken a photo class at MOCA and haven't picked up your camera since, this class is for you! In this one-morning seminar we'll refresh your memory on camera functions and settings and remind you of how to achieve great exposure in your images. Once we get the technical stuff out of the way, we'll touch on composition and light as well. There will be plenty of time for questions and to practice what you've learned. This class is designed as a reminder or refresher for students who have taken Intro to Digital Photography in the past, no matter how long ago, and want to brush up on their skills. It's not meant for students brand new to photography. Bring your camera with manual settings and a way to take notes.
