Our Zentangle Meeting

Thanks to Kansas City PMC Guild member Susan Silvy for the Zentangle lesson at our September meeting. Susan is a certified Zentangle teacher and she proved that it is possible to bring a group of talkative, creative artist-types to a completely quiet, focused state in just a few minutes!

Some of us had already tried Zentangling on our own and both Janice and guest Kim brought samples of their work. For others, this was a completely new activity and we all jumped in. (Thanks also to Betty who - though absent - loaned us her vid-cam so we could project Susan's instruction onto the big-screen to help everyone see, and to Janice who brought the tripod.)

In a matter of minutes the room of about 15 went from a loud buzz to completely pin-drop quiet as we all focused into a right-brain creative calm.

It's amazing what simple, repetitive pen strokes can become. Here's a mosaic of all the pieces finished by the end of the evening.
Susan teaches  a more complete Zentangle class. Check her page on Facebook - Kansas City Certified Zentangle Teacher, Susan Silvy for more information.

We want to see any resulting texture plates, jewelry or other items that members come up with using the Zentangle technique as a starting point. Check out our website for meeting information.
