Thank you to the Billerica Public Library and the Friends of the Library for hosting my Zentangle Basics class last night! We had a wonderful group of 20+ participants who were almost all new to Zentangle.
The group had a fabulous energy filled with cheerful smiles and enthusiasm. Throughout the evening, I kept hearing, "That's SO cool!" after a pattern took form or after shading made the images turn 3-dimensional. I love hearing the surprise as people learn that they can create something stunning with a just simple pen stroke or pencil smudge. Creating art doesn't have to take hours and hours, although it's wonderful to give yourself that much time to play. In a matter of minutes, it's possible to create something beautiful and intriguing while achieving a state of relaxed focus.
One of the participants told me that she felt relaxed throughout the class. I take yawning as a compliment when I'm teaching! :-)
Thank you to everyone for letting me share my passion with you.
Check out the amazing job they did:
