Zentangle® Inspired Art (ZIA) at Wooden Spools, 2805 S Broadway, Englewood Co. Sunday Feb. 28 (noon-3p)
Have you dipped your toe into Zentangle® learning the basic tangles? Are you fascinated by it?
Looking for another distinctive way to use it?
Ready to take it to the next level?
Then, this is your class.
First, a quick overview of tangles to use, combined with tangles from your basic Zentangle® class (or equivalent)
Use this class to honor your family heritage, creating this fun & unique ZIA project.
Themes:family name, new baby, wedding, anniversary, birthday.
Choose a letter template, add borders, draw tangles throughout the square and add color where you want. Now it is perfect for framing and hanging it on the wall.
Don’t miss my Valentine class this Saturday, Jan 23 (1p-4p) at Colorado Free University, Aurora. (near Lowry)
See what we’ll be making in this class? Can you see the 3D look to the hearts? Pretty, huh?
As always, I’ll teach you 8 new tangles that lend themselves to drawing inside a template so our end result will have a beautiful 3D look. Then you will choose 5 of those 8 tangles to draw inside your hearts.
It’s so much fun! You can mail your finished project to someone you love, frame it and hang it on your wall; you can do so many things with just a few tangles.
I’m starting to teach the ‘next step’ using tangles you learned in your previous classes and putting them inside templates similar to this. They are called ZIA.
That stands for Zentangle Inspired Art because it doesn’t reflect true Zentangle techniques you may have already learned, ie a dot in each corner of the 3.5″ square white tile, connecting them as your border and drawing a string inside to use as a guide for placement of separate tangles.

Here’s my schedule for class at Colorado Free University (1p-4p). Feb 23 – basic Zentangle class March 12 – ZIA greeting card with cute snail.
In the Dr’s waiting room the other day, I had the most amazing, magical experience. Well, of course I had my drawing book with me cuz I ALWAYS draw when I have to ‘wait’ anywhere.
Two little boys, about 8 & 10 were watching me so I asked them if they wanted to see up close. They were all grins, sooo cute. They sat beside me as I flipped thru some of my finished drawings . . . smiling and with wide eyes. The oldest said “You must be an artist!” I said “you can draw too, I can teach you.” So I taught them the steps for the simplest ribbon, showing them on paper along the way, then handed them the pen, one at a time.
DANG, I wish I had taken pics of our 3 ribbons on the page before I start filling with more tangles later but you’ll see them near the top. Mine is in the middle, the 10 yr old’s is on the left and the 8 yr old’s is the shortest one on the right. Of course they surprised themselves and were so proud.
About that time, their mom was ready to leave, she practically had to drag them out the door as we said our goodbyes. A few minutes later the oldest boy ran back up the stairs to the waiting room, his mom was already in the car, wanted my number and asked if I could teach them more some time. Kids are so eager to learn and are such little ‘sponges’, they just learn so fast. Soooo, he left with my # and website for his mom . . . just beaming.
I finished the rest of the page in the next few days, applied the shading and then tonight, I added color. Made a copy for each of them to color when I see them the next time. Can hardly wait to hear from their mom. I must be beaming a bit myself, reliving the experience by telling you about it.
