Billerica Tangles

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:
