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).
