Opus is a simple tangle that can take you in many directions.
We're enjoying some exciting and diverse Zentangle events this spring.
We've seen how Zentangle supports a relaxed focus with positive feedback, and we feel that Zentangle has important value as a wellness resource. We've also heard many stories of benefits people enjoy while creating their Zentangles. You can imagine how pleased we were to be asked to speak on this aspect at BU's "Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation." We received amazing feedback at this recent event and we'll keep you posted on future developments.
Women's Caucus for Art
are honored to be asked to present a Zentangle workshop at this April's
spring meeting of the New Hampshire chapter of Women's Caucus for Art. WCA was founded in 1972 and is a national member organization unique in its multi-disciplinary,
multicultural membership of artists, art historians, students
/educators, and museum professionals. We are excited to meet these WCA members, some of whom are active "Tanglers."
Project Renaissance is an "annual conference on creative problem-solving and enhanced/accelerated learning" held in May each year in Maryland. It is hosted by Win Wenger, Ph.D. who is "a pioneer in the fields of creativity and creative
method, accelerated learning, brain and mind development, and
political economy." Mr. Wenger's most popular book is The Einstein Factor. This year's theme is "Finding New Ways to Benefit the Human Condition -- Improving Your Tools for Helping Others, and for Helping Yourself." We are thrilled that Mr. Wenger has asked us to present Zentangle at his forum.
The National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations has invited us to help create a graphics theme for this year's annual Ellis Island Medal of Honor ceremony. Zentangle is a wonderful metaphor for NECO's celebration of diverse individuals who contribute to this country's "mosaic." We are looking forward to sharing some wonderful results with you in future newsletters.

Just in case you think only adults create Zentangles, take a look at this.
Deena D. helped her mom, Shirlee with these beautiful Easter creations . . .
. . . and fifth-grader, Joseph M. created this Zentangle for the cover of his school's "Celebrate the Arts" program.
|Maria wanted to find out how many Zentangles she could create with one pen. So far, she's up to 30! We'll put them in our next newsletter (if the ink runs out).
Thanks again and see you soon!
