Zentangle® 3-day Workshop

     View a YouTube,  learn how easy it is to emboss metal sheeting with Zentangle® patterns.

     By now we all know how exciting Zentangle is for everyone who tries it and the value we as CZT's (Certified Zentangle Teachers) can give to others by sharing the process. I am often asked to teach Zentangle classes and workshops. Since I am supposed to be 'retired', I try to preserve time for my own creative endeavors... painting, traveling, sketchbooking and journaling as well as Tangling.

     I try to limit my teaching engagements to 3 or 4 times per year. This year, Expo Artisan in Sante Fe, NM to be held in September, Art and Soul in Portland, OR (check out the videos for my classes under the class descriptions on the Art and Soul website) in October and Art of the Carolinas in Raleigh, NC in November are the venues where I will be teaching for the remainder of 2012. Occasionally I will add additional workshops to my schedule. If you are interested in attending a workshop please visit my website for updated information on the teaching schedule.

     I decided to add a special workshop this year. Since I am a member of a truly amazing Woman's Club in Fort Worth, Texas, they asked me to offer a 3-day workshop to introduce Zentangle. It was nice to be among friends and not have to pack it all up for travel. I was thrilled to discover that attendees had even driven from out of state to attend the class. The whole experience was very relaxing... exactly what Zentangle is supposed to be. Included in the 3-day workshop were Basic Tangling, Zendalas, tangling on gourds, embellished tangling, embossing on metal, and more (see the YouTube).

     Another local class I look forward to teaching is a Zentangle PLAYDAY in Irving, Texas. It will be Monday, September 3rd... a whole day of Zentangle fun. It is being held the day after the Marketing Retreat for CZT's hosted by friend and fellow CZT, Angie Vangalis. Workshop content, times and cost are contained in my previous blog post. You may email me at (suzannebmcneill@hotmail.com) for more information and registration.

     Having been in the publishing business for so many years I want to continue to share knowledge from the world of Zentangle and the world of Arts and Crafts by authoring a few books each year for Fox Chapel Publishing. I really appreciate how much can be absorbed from books and how books afford those who are not able to spend the time or money needed to travel to workshops an alternative way of learning. My goal with each book is to bring a classroom full of information to you in the comfort of your own home and at your own pace. For me, having my own art and craft library of ready reference material is priceless.

    I can't find back the Zentangle pumpkin. I have two black pumpkins, but need to know what size tip was on the oil-based white paint pens you used.
    Someone please help! I need to get these done, so I can ship them to my sons! Thanks!

      Sorry for the delay, there has been an issue with the comment section of the blog. Last year I did a YouTube video on zentangle pumpkins, it is on the Design Originals youtube channel, is that what you are referring to? If so I used the fine point marker.
