Here's my tile:

|Main tiles from first class: "Intro to Zentangle."|
|Rare opportunity to have two students that are REAL NEWBIES to Zentangle. The top three tiles were Gladden's, a dear friend and local artist. The bottom three were Molly's - one of the two 12 yr. old girls in the class. |
Anything is possible, one stroke at a time™ !
|Grace and Molly (both 12 yrs. old) were great additions to the class. Grace is quite accomplished as a Tangler already.|
This was Molly's first experience with Zentangle. Both girls stuck with it ALL DAY and did very nice work.
The right two photos above show the newest and best of my new teaching tools - a document camera with a TV as a projector.
So much better than standing at an easel for 6 hours!
There is no limit!
|Tanglers always look so "serious." They ARE having fun but in a very focused, deliberate way! I do all the talking and they do beautiful tangles! Most of the ladies spent the day, going through both classes. Jeanne Booth and Barby Reilly, CZT, joined us for the second class, "Next Step 103". Jeanne and I met through our other art outlet - beads! Jeanne is a talented lampwork bead maker. Jeanne has also been tangling on her own, doing beautiful work. She attended one of my first double classes in Nov. '14. I met Barby in Providence, RI, in June, '14, while taking the 4 day intensive courses to become Certified Zentangle Teachers. She is teaching in the Gaithersburg area. Who you don't see pictured in these photos is my good friend, Bette Brody, who is behind the camera!|
|The first tile in the second class was all about the grid. WOW!|
|Teaching Mooka from the very basic tangle and then morphing it to a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) based on an adaptation of Mooka presented by Helen Williams on her blog, a little lime. Her work is sublime and she has published several e-books and videos that share her very special, delicate and beautiful techniques!|
|Our ZIA tile using tangles learned in this face paced, more advanced class. I am always amazed at the different interpretations of the same tangles. Aren't they lovely!|
|Top three were used to teach the first class - Intro to Zentangle|
All the rest were used to teach the second class - "Next Step 103"
|Classes all done! Last shot by hubby with Melissa's phone. My dear friend Melissa Meman (artist, jewelry designer, blogger) and Bette Brody, the best friend and assistant EVER! Ready for the cold outside. Bette (multi talented multi-media artist, book maker, painter, etc., etc.). I am so blessed to be able to share my life and Zentangle with such a great crew!|
