Zentangle 101

For those who have followed my blog, you know how much I love to 'tangle'! Last night six of us from our fiber group attended Zentangle 101 class held by Sheryl Lamarand a certified Zentangle teacher at the Edge Gallery in Fenton! Sheryl was great and this is one of her pieces which I think is beautiful! Sheryl had so many examples of her work but I was too busy looking at her art work and only got a few of her pieces photographed.
Sheryl gave us each a kit which included a pen, pencil, stump (for shading), black paper and of course our Zentangle tiles.
And off we went tangling our little hearts out. We learned 7 different zentangle designs and it was so interesting to see how one design was done by everyone in the class.


These are some of Sheryl's Zentangle art work.

These were our class tiles. We each did four different patterns.
Here are the remaining tiles by the class and these were our first lesson.

My little tile starting out

I was too lazy this a.m. to take pics of my finished tiles. I'll post those later. Sheryl lives in the Lansing area and does classes all over! She is also a wonderful beader and we were fortunate to see some of her beautiful beaded jewelry. If you're interested in contacting Sheryl to find out where she's teaching next, just go to the Zentangle teacher web site here and look up her name or contact the Edge Gallery and ask when Sheryl is teaching next!

How fun to get together and learn or improve techniques. Zentangles tiles all look wonderful. Happy tangling...
