Today, I had the pleasure of teaching my “Tangled Pets” class at Icarus Creative Arts Studio. What a great time and class we had. Five ladies joined the fun and created pets/animals of their choice. Let’s see … had a Pit Bull, Great Dane, Bichon, Cat, Owl and Australian Shepherd. A Tiger should have joined us, but one of us was missing … D.J. – we missed you!
Our work was done on Opus Tiles – 10″x 10″. It can be intimidating to use this size when all we’ve ever used are the smaller 3.5″x3.5″, but when you apply the basic principles of Zentangle, no problem! We used patterns that were familiar to all so we were almost able to finish our projects within the two hours. Hollibaugh, Crescent Moon, Printemps, Keeko, Bales, Knightsbridge, Flux and Zander made up the patterns. I also showed them how to transfer a picture onto their tiles so next time they can be even more creative with their animal and tangle selections.
Next up, is an Intro Class for those of you who want to get in on this action (February 21st), then a “Tangled Garden” on March 21st to celebrate the arrival of Spring.
Thanks Sharon, Tess, Linda, Terry and Candy … I hope you enjoyed the class as much as I did. Was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in January!
Here is their work – absolutely beautiful … and for some, only their second class!
