General class FAQs, special sessions, and related stuff

Come to a class and learn how to put pen to paper, drawing each stroke deliberately, concentrating on the experience without concern for the outcome. You will be amazed at what you are able to create " stroke at a time.™ " No previous art experience required, and no (perceived) artistic talent necessary!
I teach part-time, generally weekends, for both small and large classes. For the smaller classes, I both set specific dates AND form "pick-up" classes, as needed, when I'm contacted by interested individuals. Email me at arupley55(at) if you are interested in taking a class.

Form Your Own... You can form a private class with 6 or more friends. This is a fun, simple, and creative way to spend a very enjoyable time with friends. With tangling, you’ll have a ready-made, shared group activity when you get together forever after.
Individual instruction is available. The synergy of a group experience is fun and rewarding, but it isn't for everyone. Contact me if you are interested in scheduling a private lesson.

Birthday parties or other special occasion classes for all ages are also possible. Contact me for details.
