Here's a letter to us from Carol:
Dear Rick and Maria,
I had the fabulous privilege of your wonderful hospitality
and the amazing experiences -- meeting so many terrific people,
learning so much, sharing enthusiasms and projects. Your loving
attention to detail was evident throughout. Your gallery, the studio,
the house, Oakhurst -- I will remember them all my life, and as I told
Nancy, I am already rippling Zentangles here in Ohio and at conferences
around the country!
So far we have had a 2 hour Zentangle workshop, a 4
hour workshop, and 2 Zentangle club meetings. My 6 year old grandson
and I made what we think was the world's largest Zentangle (on that day
anyway!) with sidewalk chalk on his double driveway. We taught his
kindergarten class how to do Zentangles with fun and fablulous results
-- they were far more creative than I am and I learned a lot. Hope to
send pictures of that. Then they turned around and taught their 3rd
grade buddies. When I facilitate Wellness Recovery Action Plan
workshops, I show Zentangles as a wellness tool, and three of my
friends are booked to come to meet you at the training this Fall.
All this and more adds up to an abundance of

Here's part of a note from Catherine about her workshop for the Central Massachusetts Womens Caucus for Art and a reluctant attendee:
At the end of the class, I asked her how she liked making her
Zentangle. She thanked me for "forcing" her to create one. She confided
that she had been super stressed out, had a ton of work to get done,
had family waiting for her at home, and hadn't wanted to sit and draw.
But, after filling in the first pattern, she really got into it and she
ended up feeling much calmer and more energized. Her other comment was
that this was a good reminder that she should take the time to create
-- even if it's only for 15-20 minutes per day. She was very happy with
what she created and it showed in her face.
Everyone loved creating the Zentangles and I've received feedback from
several of the students relating how they've continued to work on their
I think that their tiles are absolutely wonderful!
Here are just a few of their Zentangles:
