About This Class


In this class, you will learn how to draw a beautifully detailed zendala using a white acrylic paint pen, on top of a colourful abstract acrylic-painted canvas. You will use affordable, easily sourced art supplies to create your project and discover that drawing zendalas is a lot easier than you think!
NOTE: It's really called a mandala, but I like to zendoodle and I like mashing two words together, so I call it a zendala :)

One of the best classes I've experienced here. Well paced and taught, with tools to help you go on to create your own unique works. Love it! Thank you.
Nicely presented class with a reasonably simple, fun project.
Amazing class. Sixteen minutes to go from complete newbie to making beautiful designs. Thank you for this class. I surprised myself with how easy it is to do with your instruction.
