40+ Students Last Week


What a week!  As you know, I consider all of my beginner tanglers as my “tangling babies”!  Well, this week I helped over 40 people become tanglers!  It is really quite exciting for me to be able to share the Art of Zentangle with so many people.

Here is a mosaic of the work that we did in the Beginner Workshop at The Carriage Factory Art Gallery in Newton.  I am always amazed at how wonderful these turn out.  Most people who take this workshop have not created a Zentangle before.  It’s so empowering to create these and realize that everyone has the talent and capability to create art.

After the Beginner Workshop, we also had a Tangled Ink & Watercolor Workshop.  I always have fun with this class, too.  Everyone seems to especially enjoy working with the pearlized and metallic watercolors.

Here’s a tip…when I tangle over the watercolor, I use one of the Apprentice pens (Pigma 05).  This is not to be confused with the Micron 05 pen.  The Apprentice pen has a hard, plastic nib.  Using a Micron pen on top of watercolor eats away at the nib.  But the Apprentice pen holds up quite nicely.  I am not sure where you can buy these types of pens.  As a CZT, I am able to get mine from Zentangle.  If you are interested, just call or email me; I’d be happy to sell them to you ($2.99 + tax + S/H).

Happy Tangling!
