There are days this summer when I feel a bit of cabin fever as I retreat in the house next to the air conditioner. Luckily, I am never bored as there is always art to make which of course includes tangles.

If you are looking for a fun way to beat the heat in central air and entertain you and the kids this summer...then I've got something for you that is absolutely FREE!  All supplies included, just bring yourself and your friends and or family!

Starting next week I am helping to facilitate a whole new event!  The great folks at the Spokane Public Library are sponsoring a group of classes using both Zentangle and Mandala!

It all started when I shared with the library via social media a news story from China about the world's largest Zentangle Mosaic that was created by donors to a fund raiser. Here's a link for more on that : http://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/article/1656679/world-record-zentangle-mosaic-boosts-operation-santa-claus-hk150000

I, not so innocently asked....Can Spokane do Better?  The challenge was laid and the ideas flowed.

My Mandala artist friend Connie Janney (http://www.conniejanney.com/)  then got in on the act and a plan was hatched to offer not only Zentangle which you will create on the round, but Mandalas too

Then it went a step farther and we are going to display the work you do in these classes at the Downtown Main Big Mother Ship Library as part of Create Spokane in October, so don't be shy, be colorful!

Here are the details on these Zentangle Mandala Creation Classes:

Wednesday, July 15 - 11 am to 12 pm at East Side Library

Tuesday, July 21 - 6 pm to 7 pm at South Hill Library

Wednesday, July 22 - 4 pm to 5 pm at Hillyard Library

Thursday, August 6 - 4 pm to 5 pm at Shadle Library

Tuesday, August 18 - 6 pm to 7 pm at Indian Trail Library

Then, that's not the only FREE Library Program I will be offering, check this out!

I will be teaching a three part Zentangle Class at the South Hill Library starting in August!  We will start with the basic introductory class and then build on skills over the next two classes. You do not have to come to all three as you can easily pick up the skills in each class. However you may feel more comfortable with the two consecutive classes if you have taken one of my classes before or have tangling experience, but it's not mandatory.

Here are the details for the ZENTANGLE IN THREE PARTS SERIES....

All classes are at the South Hill Library:

Tuesday, August 11 -  4:00 - 5:00 pm  - Beginner Zentangle

Monday, August 31 -  6:00 - 7:00 pm - Zentangle - The Next Step

Tuesday, September 15 - 6:00 - 7:00 pm - More Advanced Tangles


I have teamed up with two fabulous teacher/facilitators to bring you a WHOLE NEW EXPERIENCE.  In this workshop you will create by combining Collage, Zentangle and Mandala!

Heather Berndt, designer, who also facilitates Soul Collage (http://www.soulativity.com/) and Connie Janney, Mandala Artist and facilitator (http://www.conniejanney.com/) will be joining me to bring to you....drum roll please... An All Day program presenting Zentangle, Soul Collage and Mandala designed to nurture YOU!

The tentative date  is Saturday, September 19th from 9 am to 4 pm.  The cost will be $90 per person prepaid and includes all supplies and instruction.

We are waiting to hear back about the exact location which will be in the Greater Spokane Area and other details, so stay tuned for a special announcement when all is set and you'll be able to sign up and pay online!  I am getting excited already!  How am I a going to wait two more months?

And...One More Thing...

In the month of December I will be bringing Free Zentangle Classes to the Spokane County Libraries, so watch for those dates in future newsletters!

I am also always available for private one on one Zentangle lessons or private classes for small groups for you, your friends, family or co-workers.  Planning a corporate retreat and want a life skills component, why not Zentangle?  I can be reached via call or text at 509-995-1647 or email at colorgardenstudio@comcast.net to discuss the details.

I hope to see you this summer! Keep tangling with Rain in mind.

Loretta West, Certified Zentangle Teacher
