Nine lovely ladies participated in my first Zentangle class for 2013. After my October class in Manistique, sponsored by the Lake Effect Community Arts Center, the organizers asked me to return to teach again. This second class covered the basics of the Zentangle method, but we also had fun making a Zendala.

A Zendala is a circle filled with tangles. The name comes from a combination of mandala and “Zen”tangle. We used one of the prestrung tiles from the official Zendala kit. You can read more about the kit and see some examples from the Zentangle originators here.IMG_20130119_142409We started with a tradtional Zentangle tile.

This was a wonderful class and I enjoyed sharing Zentangle with these very focused and enthusiastic artists!
