This week we worked on some challenging tangles including W2 and Huggins. You can see a nice example of Huggins in the tile at the center of the bottom row. The students were very focused and motivated to get the concepts of these more difficult tangles. We also did Verdigough, Raddox, Betweed, Flux, Vitruvius and Jetties.
We are having loads of fun, and as you can see from these tiles, the students are very enthusiastic. I am inspired by their creativity and willingness to try even the more complicated tangles.

Here are the tiles done by the students at the Copper Country Community Arts Center. The tangles are: Poke Leaf, Printemps, Rick’s Paradox, and Beeline. Some found Paradox a bit challenging, so they made a “tangelation” with it. However, they were all able to figure it out after practice on some scratch paper. On our second tile, we worked on the the tangle Purk.
All the students continue to enjoy the Zentangle process and are excited about learning new tangles, new ideas for Zentangle Inspired Art (ZIA) and sharing their creative endeavors. These four weeks of class are going by fast!
I had my first Zentangle class at the Copper Country Community Arts Center on Wednesday, January 11. Seven wonderful students, several of them who had never heard of Zentangle before, participated, and they entered into the process with enthusiasm and focus. As you can see from their first tiles above, are all very creative and expressive. They were all delighted with their own and each others’ tiles, which much “oohing and aahhing,” and pointing out the similarities, differences, and artistic variations in their creations.
They had even more fun with their second tiles, as they relaxed and enjoyed the process. We have three more class sessions, and I am really looking forward to our journey together as we explore the delightful world of Zentangle.
Thanks to my students for being my first “paying customers” and making the teaching of Zentangle so rewarding!
