    Hello All,

    This summer I will take part in the Allen Street Farmers Market, City Market/Grand Art Market and the Lansing Juneteeth Celebration all in Lansing.

    I am also planning a garage sale for Friday, June 14th.  More info to come.

  5. So, What is Zentangle?

    October 28, 2012 by Administrator

    Zentangle® is a method and  process of developing art while relaxing your mind.  Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas developed Zentangle.  You can find out more about their story by viewing Zentangle.com. I met Rick and Maria during the Certified Zentangle Teacher training I attended in September of this year.  Rick and Maria were very knowledgeable, professional and  genuine in their teaching.

    Over the last year, I have found that Zentangle has added to my life greatly.

    1. Zentangle is a simple inexpensive, quick and portable method of creating art.

    2. Zentangle allows me as the artist to relax, relieve stress and take my mind off of the problems of life.

    3. Learning and sharing Zentangle has allowed me to meet many great new people both through social media and in my community.

    4. Using Zentangle techniques combined with other art forms- such as painting, glass engraving, drawing, fabric art, etc, -has greatly enhanced and improved the art I create.

    5.  Zentangle gives me the great feeling of accomplishment and success.

    6.  My need create and to share the gift of Zentangle with others has re-energized my life.

    Yes,  Zentangle is just that great…. Give it a try!

     

    Zentangle®  is a hot new national creative craze. Wantabe artists are finding this craze fun and relaxing. Tanglers, as Zentangle artists call themselves, use this technique to create one-of-a-kind artistic works.

    The Zentangle® art form and method was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas and is copyrighted. Zentangle® is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. Learn more at zentangle.com.

    Zentangle is a structured way of creating small, normally about 3” x 3”, black and white works of art using a fine line inking pen.  The supplies required are limited and very inexpensive.  Once the Zentangle technique is learned it may be applied to many other artistic or crafting projects including drawing, painting and scrap booking.The most important part of Zentangle is the creative process.  While using repeated simple marks to create very complex designs your mind and body is able to de-stress and relax. The beautiful finished product also does great things for the tanglers confidence and self esteem.  A student doesn’t have to worry if they can’t draw. The Zentangle step by step technique is for everyone, no matter the artistic talent or lack thereof.

    Classes include the Zentangle process, materials and basic “tangles”. Only one class will allow you to enjoy the basics this great hobby.

    Painting angels for Christmas  cards and ornaments using enamel paints on frosted glass bulbs  (from Hobby Lobby).

     

    Angels step by step.

     

    Using a non-traditional color scheme is fun. I love the purple and gold combination.
