One of my students texted me to say my Zentangle class was advertised in our local paper "Night and Day" page. Sure enough, there it was. That's pretty cool. Thanks Botanical Garden and Sharon !
Our class today was an Introduction to Zentangle Art Method and we had a great time. Sharing the history, and intention that all certified teachers are taught by the co-founders, Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas at seminar, makes this class full of Zen (relaxing) and tangles (patterns).
Didn't the students do a great job on their first Zentangle tile? (Sibylla didn't use her tiles (that is what we call the paper we tangle on), she said she was keeping them for art gifts for Christmas). Now that was a first for me. FYI, us teacher have tile you can buy (and she did).
Remember - just the basic: Border, string and tangles. Simple as that !!!
Introduction to Zentangle class is like "kindergarten" just the simle basic instruction of Zentangle.So why not do a fun animal that I always do with the "kids" I teach.
We tangled a tortoise today to go along with the garden theme.. Love them.
If you are in the area of Encinitas California, you should stop by the San Diego Botanical Garden. This was just a couple pics I caught before class next to the classroom. What a great place to stroll thru when you have some free time. Special touches on all the displays they have throught out the park are well thought out and detailed. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time if you go. This place is huge.
Can't wait till next class next year
