This month we have a new tangle, some great images and feedback.
Have you visited BLOG Zentangle? Please join us for some daily Zentangle art, ideas and conversation.
New Tangle Bales
Like many of our tangles, Bales begins with a basic grid. Then we add these little elongated rice shaped ovals. This is a great tangle because you can have fun taking it in many different directions. 
We're sure we had a clever reason for naming this tangle Bales, but neither of us can remember what it was! 


Rick and Maria,
Thanks so much!  My kit arrived about 3 hours ago.  The UPS man slipped it up on the porch without us even knowing.  I am so excited about it.  The kit came so quickly and thanks for personally signing the invoice.  Little things do mean a lot.  I am a quilter, knitter, and needleworker.  I just read your blog yesterday for the first time.  I'm going to be learning quite a few new things.


I'm hoping that you see a mini surge in Zentangle kit orders. I shared mine with a group of art teachers from various grade levels yesterday at an area meeting. I have had inquiries from two teachers today already about ordering a kit. I still think you should consider a teacher training in Iowa! :-)

I've used Zentangles to start my new group of Fundamentals of Art students at the high school level. This is their first high school art class, and many are a bit shy about their artistic skills. We used Zentangles to 'warm up' the first two complete classes. They were intrigued. We are planning to create tangles once a week or so when we need a zen moment.

Thanks again! --RS
Dear Maria and Rick,
Thank you both and WOW - am I ever impressed.
I just got home from Massachusetts after attending the Tim Collins Show that the two of you so kindly shared a sneak peek into Zentangle with and already I have been added to your e-mail list and received my first e-mail from you.
Thank you!
I realize you hear this over and over but I also wish to add my name to the extremely long list of appreciative "students" you have shared a peek into the Zentangle world with.
I will be eagerly looking to receive the news about registering for your CZT Workshop in October.  I hope to receive proper certification to teach Zentangle, as I would love to be the one that opens up this world to some of our area teenagers who could use a positive activity in their lives.
Thank you for what you have created and so generously chosen to share.
All the best, --GM

We are so thrilled to see your wonderful creations and read your amazing stories. Thank you so much - we read and appreciate every one. As much as we'd like to answer every email and include everything you send in our newsletters or on our blog, we can't. Thank you for your understanding and thank you again for everything you send our way.

Hello Rick & Maria
I discovered Zentangle through a blog I follow called "Watch me Create".  There then followed a thread on the forum I'm a member of "Frit Happens" and I was hooked.  I'm a big fan and have enjoyed Tangling very much.  I attach a couple of photos in case you are interested.  I like it especially because I can create pictures that actually look good.  For a person who draws like a very young child this is a great achievement.
I also wanted to say "Thank You" anyway for this wonderful way for me to create pictures when I can't actually draw in the traditional sense.  All I need now is some magic machine to make my singing sound fabulous and I'll be laughing!
Kindest regards and thanks for a great new hobby

Howard Weitsen and Mickey Weitsen, both CZTs in Louisiana sent this:
Dear Rick and Maria:
Attached please find a few photographs from 3 workshops that Mickey and I have taught here in Louisina. The smaller montage is from a private class here at our art studio (in beautiful Covington, LA).  These "first" original zentangles are spectacular.
We agree, Howard! Wish we could have shown them all.
Zentangle Master Class
Our first Zentangle Master Class on August 3, 4 and 5 in Newport, Rhode Island is now full.

We're looking forward to a wonderful time with everyone who's coming.
We will be emailing registration forms to all shortly. This is going to be so much fun! 

CZT Training

Although our May 18-21 seminar is full, we have another one scheduled for October 12-15, 2010. As we get closer to that date (probably early June) we'll open registrations. Learn more about our Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) training here and read through our previous newsletters that discuss our seminar.

As we mentioned in our last newsletter, we've posted a blog here about our CZT program here. If you have any questions, let us know and we'll add to that entry. 

Thank you again for joining in this wonderful adventure! 
You can comment on this newsletter at our blog.
