Drop-in Hours—The Dr. is in!
While in India, my colleagues there took to calling me Dr. Jill—which I found quite charming. I reprise it here, with a nod to one of my favorite cartoonists, Charles M. Schulz.
In this freeform “Hour of Opportunity” you are welcome to show up with a question about your work with the bikablo method, ask for feedback on a piece you are developing or have completed, or explore different ways in which to use your skills. You’re welcome to drop in and depart as you wish, or stay for the hour, listening to and learning from your colleagues!

Cultivate Calm through Zentangle
Join me in drawing simple, structured patterns to create beautiful images, in a fun and supportive environment. Zentangle is a meditative art form that is created without planning, and yet follows a series of steps that allows people to experience the benefits of relaxed focus while creating delightful artwork. While I usually teach in person, I am now offering sessions online to communities of which I am a part.
I believe that our current circumstances call for opportunities for nurturing calm, engaging in simple pleasures, creating beauty, and enjoying communal experiences.
Everyone is welcome to become a part of this captivating journey—no artistic experience is necessary. This is the right place to begin—or enhance—your skills. When you sign up, I will share information about the tools that I use—though they are not necessary to your success—and if you really want them, I can send the materials to you for future classes or your own enjoyment.
