Have you heard about Zentangle?

One of Maria's beautiful Zentangle designs

I took a Zentangle class at Art & Soul - Hampton last year and was instantly hooked on this simple, meditative art process developed by the very gifted husband-and-wife team of Maria and Rick Thomas.  As the Zentangle website explains, "With Zentangle, anyone can create beautiful images from repetitive patterns. This method is easy to learn and easy to do. And even though it is a specified series of steps, it results in a creative expression that transcends its own rules."

The results are always surprising and pleasing.  You cannot fail at Zentangle! Just look at these first Zentangle attempts by the students in the class I took (mine is second from the left on the next-to-the-bottom row).  

Pretty amazing, huh?
In just a few weeks, I will be going to Massachusetts to become a Certified Zentangle Teacher, and I'm already scheduled to teach a class for our local arts association.  I'll be sharing lots of information about Zentangle here, too, so plan on getting all tangled up with me after May 16!
