Zentangle for Christmas Eve Day

My official last Zentangle class to teach for 2017 was Christmas Eve morning, near Torrey Pines Beach, San Diego, Cali.  I was asked to teach a private class for Fred, Cindy (his Mom), his daughter (Emma), and son (Sam).  They were visiting just for the holidays in San Diego.  It is hard for me to turn down an opportunity to share Zentangle. 

The four family members learned about the corner dots/border/string and tangles. We shaded and initialed our art and appreciated what we created.   During the process they relaxed, and got into a state of well-being - healing art.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh   Who doesn't need that during the hectic holidays?

When Granpa and Mom came back to the condo, the family impressed them with the art they created.  One of my favorite classes is a multi-generation Zentangle class.  Zentangle will help a family have a great bonding experience to do together.    Zentangle is easy, any age can complete.  What a delightful family.  Thank you for allowing me into your home-away-from-home to share Zentangle.

What about you?  Make a New Years Resolution to start your Zentangle journey. If you are in the San Diego area, check out my classes coming or email me:  maseyjanet@gmail.com and I'll teach a class at your event.

                                              Let's schedule a class!

  Great job family !!!

Allied Gardens/Benjamin Library - Teens find Zentangle Olaf

With the holidays right around the corner and the weather in San Diego, California in December in the 80's....  I just had to bring a little "FROZEN" to my Zentangle class today for the teens afterschool event at Allied Gardens Library. There were nine of us and a librarian associate join us also.  

With only an hour time slot for class, I opted out of teaching the kids how to "trace" Olaf, and decided to let them have fun with coloring their project with watercolor pencils.  How much fun was this?  

I told the kids I had a candy cane for the winner of the "most interesting" art. At the end of class, they put their art work together and each student choose one picture they liked.  I thought they all put a gallant effort into their art piece. How can you choose just one?  
                         THEY ALL GOT A CANDY CANE.  


Thanks to the library for sharing snacks during class and for inviting me again to share Zentangle with the kids.  

P.S.  Zentangle isn't just for kids... adults love it too. Try it, you'll like it.

La Mesa Library Zentangle Greeting Card

Image result for la mesa library images
What a great class today at La Mesa Library near San Diego, California.  This was my last Zentangle Greeting Card Class for 2017.  I already have lots of new card ideas for next year. I know, don't hurry the season.

When designing the card to teach for class, I googled all the poinsettia pics and tangles and came up with this tangelation (variation) to incorporate for my design.  The best part was the string of lights for the border.  We used watercolor pencils to define the objects.

Enjoy using Zentangle to create your own greeting cards throughout the year  - not just during the holidays.

  Wonderful to meet new "tanglers" and see some familiar faces. The ladies did a great job.  Thank you for joining me today and thanks La Mesa Library for inviting me again to share The Zentangle Method.
