Zentangle 101 Class in a local consignment store

Well, I taught my first class here in Myrtle Beach, SC.  A lady who owns a local consignment store called the Flamingo Porch asked if I'd be interested in teaching some kind of art class in her store during store hours and I said "Sure!"  I figured Zentangle 101 was the least messy class I could teach and I had some wonderful students who had never heard of Zentangle before that signed up.  They were amazing.  Here are their finished tiles.

We started with the basics:  Hollibaugh, Crescent Moon and Poke Root.

Then we moved forward to Knightsbridge, Msst, Keeko, and some fillers.

The final tile was dedicated to learning Rick's Paradox, one of my all time favorites.  We added a little bit of Flux to the edges.

Here's a group photo that has most of the students in it.  I have to be quicker with my camera next time before any of them get away!

I'm so proud of these ladies and what they were able to learn in just 2 hours!  Amazing, like Rick and Maria say it is just "one stroke at a time".  All the students are newbies to this art form.  We caused quite a stir right there tangling in the middle of the store at a large table that was for sale.  A girls gotta do what she has to do, right?

So far Myrtle Beach has been kind to us.  We're really enjoying the weather, the people are absolutely lovely and after just a couple of months here I'm getting back out there teaching and crafting here at home.

Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate your visits and comments.  Take care, hugs ~ Renee
