Yesterday’s class at Icarus Creative Arts Studio focused on new patterns. Given the option to learn a few then tangle a tile, the class opted for learning all TWELVE new patterns! While a little less structured class, it was good to just focus and learn the new strokes. A few patterns needed a little more concentration than others, which at times was hard because of the live music playing on the Tasting Room patio … and it was good music! I can attest to getting lost for a second and creating a “bronx cheer” moment!
Patterns learned fell into all three groups of grids, borders and organic. Three of the patterns were Zentangle patterns, while the other nine were submissions by CZT’s to TanglePatterns.com. One of the “submitters” was in the class, Suzanne Wilka, CZT, so I shared her pattern “Arckles” … a fun pattern with lots of opportunities. It was another beautiful Sunday afternoon at the Bernardo Winery spent tangling with a wonderful group of ladies.
While we didn’t tangle tiles, I did prepare a few ahead of time so the class could see how these patterns worked together.
