 This past summer I was involved with something fun through the Spokane Public Library. 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 as part of Create Spokane!

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

Slight delay on Soul Collage Zendala Workshop.....
I had announced earlier that I was working with my friends to bring you a workshop combining Soul Collage, Mandala and Zentangle in September.  Unfortunately, we've had to put those plans on hold for a little while....but stay tuned as it will happen, just not quite yet! 

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 soon! Keep tangling with Rain in mind.

Loretta West, Certified Zentangle Teacher
