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 :)
