Zentangle and Fall Leaf at Lakeside Library

Feel the cool breeze in the air?  San Diego's heat wave finally broke to only 80 degrees in Lakeside California. I began to teach my fall Zentangle classes starting at Lakeside Library.

Our class today was a Zentangle Fall Leaf.  We learned many tangles to apply inside our "string" that happened to look like a leaf.  Embellished the border with  "Linked" tangle by Vicki Murray then followed with embellishments of "perfs" and "aura", to complete our leaf.  Students could go home and bring some fall color to their leaf with colored pencils.  However, just using black and brown sharpies to give contrast to our leaf looked pretty good without color.  I always say, "the patterns speak for themselves".
Students admiring each others finished project. 

Nice work guys.

I suggest students to bring to class their tangles to share. 
Today, a student shared her tangled pumpkin.
Thanks for sharing.

Oasis Zentangle Pumpkin Workshop 

Today's Zentangle class was at Oasis  in La Mesa, California.  This location is a special place for 55 plus folks that love to learn. 
The Zentangle Pumpkin Workshop is a popular fall class. Great group of folks.   

AND.... I can NOT talk about David.  He was so cute.  After my instruction on "tangles" we could apply to our pumpkin, he began tangling.  He took his pumpkin to a whole new level.  When I walked thru class to see how they were doing, he had applied fun little jack-o-lantern faces on his pumpkin.  I praised him for originality. Peggy, who brought him to class, said David likes to draw outhouses.  I told him to draw one on his pumpkin.   Thanks for coming to class today David.  You are a hoot.

 The almost finished project: The Zentangle Pumpkin. 

Thanks for coming Marilyn, Pat, Carol, Lydia, Karen & Barbara
and of course David - who had to leave early.
These clever pumpkins make great house warming gifts for those fall get togethers.
