Zentangle at UArt
May 28, 2016 • 1 Comment
You know, I can be having a really difficult morning with body pain, hand pain, headache, whatever....but the moment the students start walking in for the class, it just uplifts me! The students are so open and curious and ready for discovery that it brings those same things up for me. That's why it never gets old teaching the basics. Each person brings something new to the playing field.
Almost all of the ladies in this basics class said they had never used the Zentangle art method before! At least one, had just seen the email blast from University Art (which displays a couple of my tiles) and said, what the heck, I'm going to take the class!
That's all it really takes to learn this wonderful, deliberate, meditative drawing process...a little curiosity, and about 3 hours. Trust me when I say the 3 hours flys by and you won't want to stop!
Take a look at this class' beautiful tiles! Then go to my Zentangle page and sign up for a class. You won't be sorry!
A regular tile is 3.5"x3.5" and we have used a 'Z' string to fit 4 awesome tangles (patterns). Tangles are: Hollibaugh, 'N Zeppel, Knights Bridge and Crescent Moon
The Bijou tile is 2"x2" and is just the right size for a mono-tangle (single tangle pattern on one tile). We used a tangleation of Aquafleur for these tiles. A tangleation is when you draw a tangle with your own twist on it.
I'd love to see you at my next Basics class. You need to take the Basics class to then take the Beyond classes. I've got some great Beyond classes coming up too: Black Tiles, real pumpkins for Halloween, ornaments and cards for the holidays...you don't want to miss it!
