Recent Classes Were Such Fun!

I’m so frustrated that a month has passed since I last posted here! I think of the blog daily so I just need to get myself in gear. I really care about my readers and students, so don’t mistake my lack of posting for a lack of caring. I have taught two classes recently and both were so much fun. The first was a FUNdamentals beginner class of 10 students held in the North Tazewell United Methodist Church. Here are some photos from that day…

It's amazing how five strokes that we all use (when we write) turn into beautiful patterns!

The class mosaic. Everyone learned the same thing, with same instructions and look how different they are!. It's fascinating how each piece of art we draw is unique even if we use the same four tangles every time!

Here they are, three hours of teaching and we have ten new artists!

On July 28, I taught a class of my own design called The Secret Garden of Zentangles: Botanicals©, and there were 12 student who had completed the beginner course. They came from a variety of places: Tazewell, Grundy, Wytheville, Bluefield, Richmond and Mississippi! There was much joy and many “aha” moments, and I’m eager to teach that class again! It was the first time I had taught this class, and I wasn’t sure if the class could go as far as I had planned, but they were quick learners! I was able to teach 17 tangles!

Please check out the new page (see menu or list across the top) called TESTIMONIALS. If you see two pages, one works and one doesn’t 😟. I’ve tried everything I know to get rid of that bad page nod I give up.

Ah, well.  I’ll write more soon, and I mean that!!

Happy Tangling,
