Welcome to new (and continuing) tanglers in Nokomis and Sarasota, Florida!

January is off to a great start with Zentangle, with a few Introduction to Zentangle classes as well as a Renaissance tile class! I am always amazed at the variety of styles that each tile has, even though we are each doing the same tangles! I also enjoy how we can all be inspired by each other. New ideas and tanglations come out all the time!

It's such a joy to share the Zentangle process with others, *and* to make new friends at the same time!

Here's our class on January 19:
Back to front: Dale, Lynn, Tawmmie, Rita, Joyce

More friends met together on  January 13:

Leslie, Joy, Jan, and Carrie.

~ And here is our group for the Renaissance tile class! I love sharing the Renaissance techniques because of the depth that's achieved from using shading as well as highlighting. 

 . . . and last but NOT least, we had a small (but wonderful) class at Sarasota Art & Frame! We had three new tanglers. Only two gave permission to have their photos put up on the blog, so I was happy to add them!


Take a look at the wonderful differences and individual styles of these three!

. . . . . . A  big "THANK YOU" to all who have joined me in classes!

A new year for tangling! Happy 2016!

Whew! The holidays are over! I hope everyone had a fantastic start to the new year, filled with peace, relaxation, and creativity!

Here at our park, the "summer camp for adults" is officially open. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of teaching 12 new tanglers at Sarasota Art & Frame. (It was also the first time that I used a digital projector, and I think that it helped immensly!)



~Today, we had "Tangle Talk" at our park: an informal get-together of tanglers to share ideas and inspire each other. Today, we had 9 people show up: a lot of creative energy!

Tangling on seashells!
