July 2008

This month, we'll show you how to draw cubine.

We're putting plans together for a Zentangle teacher training program. More on that and other good news below.

We were walking in Paris and saw this inlaid container in an antique shop window.

We thought it would make a great Zentangle pattern so Maria put it in her Zentangle "field-notes" book.

This enjoyable pattern is full of contrast and depth. It can be done with straight or curved lines. Enjoy!

Zentangle Teacher Training
People have ask how to become certified as Zentangle teachers to be able give authorized Zentangle classes and seminars and possibly resell Zentangle products.

So . . . sometime in February 2009, we'll hold our first Zentangle Training Seminar. People who successfully complete our course will be certified as Zentangle teachers and as Zentangle product resellers.

While some details may change, this is how it's coming together so far:
  • Class size of 10-15
  • Gathering at a B&B in Providence, RI area
  • 2-3 days over a weekend
  • Sometime in February 2009
  • Visits to our studio and home
Several people we've spoken to are already planning to come. If you're interested, please write or email and tell us about yourself and why you'd like to join in. Since we're limiting our class size, we wanted our newsletter readers to have a chance to participate as well as folks we meet face-to-face.

We'll figure out costs, times and other specifics as we go along. Any questions, suggestions or requests you might have, please let us know.

Zentangle Exhibit at Alternatives
A public exhibition of Maria's Zentangles will open October 1, 2008, at Alternatives, a beautifully restored local mill that serves our community in many ways. Our exhibit will run for several weeks.

We will display pieces from our "Backstares Gallery" (see last month's newsletter) and also some beautiful new Zentangle creations. If you can come by, we'd love to meet you.

Sakura Features Zentangle
Sakura featured Zentangle in their recent promotion piece for their Pigma Micron pens.
Our quote reads, "Creating repetitive patterns has been a human tradition throughout times and cultures. It is entrancing to experience the beautiful deep black ink flow from a Pigma Micron onto archival paper."

Thanks Sakura for your awesome pens!

And thank you all for spending time with us in these newsletters.

Until next month,

Rick and Maria
