Black Tile Class!

So you already know I'm a late poster. Well, throw in a vacation in Kaua'i, Hawaii, and I am a REALLY late poster. I am back and full of Aloha, so I wanted to post some pictures of the Black Tile class at University Art that was held on July 29th.
It was an awesome class, full of challenges and inspiration. Let's talk about Paradox... This tangle always gives folks the heebie-jeebies, so I like to teach it and get them over the hill. We drew Tripoli inspired triangles and then filled some of them with Paradox. At the end, there were still some who loathed it, but more that loved it!
Then we used the Zen Stone to create a gray space on half of a tile. We used Flux and Courant on the black side and Flux and Ibex on the gray side. Finally, we grabbed a black Bijou tile and played with Panzee.
See below for class tiles as well as a couple of tiles sent to me after the class.
