Experience with Zentangle

could show me something. She went to her computer, went the Zentangle website

there was going to be a workshop and two individuals from the school were going

believe in coincidences but rather we are given opportunities within our life
that could take us into new directions. Next thing I know, I am sitting in the
first Zentangle Teacher Certification Workshop. I have to say I was rather
na´ve about Zentangle and why all these people from around the country and
world were gathering in Whitinsville for this event.
with a gathering at Rick and Maria's home Tuesday evening; where I was warmly
welcomed and was given this wonderful tour of their studio and the work they
have been doing with Zentangle. Being socially nervous about meeting new
people, I observed and took in the tremendous creativity displayed throughout
their home and felt a connection. It made me look forward to the following two

own silver wire wrapped
jewelry when I am not a classroom
teacher. For some time I had wanted to take a drawing course to expand my
artform and add inspiration to my silver wire
work. The Zentangle workshop
opened those doors for me; it was an incredible two days of learning and
exploring this process of tangling.
"For me, the
Zentangle process was new but very familiar. I had been drawing like that since
a young child. What I liked was the purposeful process and rhythm of the
pattern drawing I experience and continue to experience each time I tangle. I
enjoy the confines of the square paper and the strings, challenging me to
think different and only see possibilities for drawing. Having done more
tangling since the workshop and I have used various medium to do it; I have
grown to endear the feeling of the pen to paper offered in the kits like
comfort food. It takes me back to the roots of my being.
"I can only
express gratitude to Rick and Maria for opening their hearts and home to me and
my fellow Zentanglers. I am excited to explore this new process in my life and
to share it with my teaching colleagues and students!
"Thanks for the inspiration!"
