Family Art Day at Balboa Library

On this rare rainy day in San Diego, California, about 18 kids and adults ventured out of their warm cozy homes to learn what this new, unique art method is - ZENTANGLE. 

The Balboa Library had a great turn out for this fun project.  Ages from young to seniors attended class.  When I teach to the families/kids, I like to apply the patterns (tangles) to a fun outline.  Our tangles definitely made the dragonfly dance off the paper.

Below, I accidently didn't zoom out to get this little girls picture with her art work.  Her hair was dark as Snow White and beautiful porcelain skin.  Darn it.


Thanks to everyone that joined me for class. Happy you started your Zentangle journey today.

Allied Gardens/Benjamin Library Finds Their Heart

Before you know it, January will be gone, and onto February.  Twenty one of us got a head start on Valentine's Day and created a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) Valentine's Day project at Allied Gardens/Benjamin Library in San Diego, California.

We created a Valentine Bouquet using The Zentangle Method of drawing structured patterns.  Typically, Zentangle is abstract, but this is one of many classes I teach with The Zentangle Method in mind using the patterns (tangles) to bling up an art project. 

One of my favorite part of the class is when all the students bring their work together and we all look at everyone's interpretation of the instruction.  

One of the ladies brought her son, and this is his work below.  I LOVE it.  Thanks for coming.
