My last two classes have been very interactive amongst the tanglers!
One of them featured “Co-op Tangling”. We had six people in the class so we created a string on our tile with six spaces. We proceeded to fill in one of the sections with a pattern of our choice, then passed the tile to the person next to us. They then filled in a section with their pattern of choice and so on and so on, until the tile was full.
It was interesting to see the patterns that were chosen, and the different skill levels, all coming together to create a beautiful piece of Zentangle art! The students were a little hesitant about sharing their work on another’s tile, but in the end, it turned out to be a very fun project – we’re all at different levels in our Zentangle journey’s, but we all started from the same place!
The other class had Judy and Julie dividing their elongated, custom tiles into a string with several spaces. I gave them a print-out of the patterns (just names) they’ve learned in the last year and had them pick out the patterns that we used to fill our spaces. This was a lot of fun to see their work at the end of class.
Both classes showed that it doesn’t matter where you are in your practice of Zentangle, we can all create beautiful tiles
using this art method. No mistakes … no erasers!
