Bleeding artfully at the North Gower Branch


On March 21st at the North Gower Branch Library, participants gathered to create gorgeous works of art with Zentangle drawings and bleeding on them. 

Before you become too concerned, the 'bleeding' in this case is done using wet, coloured tissue paper and allowing the dye to seep into the drawing.  This creates a colourful abstract effect on the Zentangle picture.  No blood, sweat or tears even remotely necessary!

As you can see from the photo, the group had a wonderful time.  You can too at the Manotick Branch on Tuesday March 26 2019 at 1:30 pm.  Register with your card through this link:
