University Community Library

University Community Library in San Diego, SoCal was Introduced to The Zentangle Method today.  Eighteen folks joined me at the library to learn what in the heck Zentangle is all about. 

After teaching 10,000 students in the last four years, I still can't believe Zentangle is a foreign word to most people.  Even Rosie O'Donnell shared "Zentangle"  many years ago. 

THE VIEW and Rosie O'donnell

In 2014, on THE VIEW TV morning show, Rosie O'Donnell talked about dolls she was selling for Rosie's Theatre Kids (for less fortunate children) to raise money for them.  The best part was that she told everyone about Zentangle art method that she used to draw on the dolls and auction them off.  She even had Howard Stern tangling on the show.  Rosie has been tangling for years.   How cool is that?

My passion is to get the word out about this unique, one of a kind art method that takes the "hard" out of art.  Zentangle motto is "anything is possible, one stroke at a time".  

If you haven't done so already, take a class from a Certified Zentangle Teacher.  CZT's have been certified by the co-founders of the art method and taught, history, philosophy, and technique in the way the method was design. 

Look at the difference of one of my students art work before (art work using what she learned from books and Internet),  to what her art work looked like after taking a class from a CZT.

Learning from Internet and books:
Art working after taking class from CZT:

  More depth and texture.

Great group of eighteen newbies to Zentangle and seasoned tanglers.   Patterns learned today were:
Onamato, Crescent Moon, Rainking, Paradox.

University Community Library is having a four series class of The Zentangle Method.
 #1 - Introduction to Zentangle
 #2 - Beyond Basic
 #3 - Bunny in a Basket
 #4 - Butterfly with color

You can take all four classes or any one of them.
