3-d Class with Suzanne McNeill

3-d Class with Suzanne McNeill

It was a great class.  We made these wonderful 3-d flowers using new tangles that Suzanne walked us through.  Then we colored and layered them.  Some even had time to put them on the peek-a-boo cards and get them ready to add leaves and stems.

New Class Schedule Added. . .

We have been very busy lately.  In April we attended Tangle U in Portland, Maine where we were overwhelmed with new ideas and techniques for Zentangle Inspired Art.  We can’t wait to assimilate all this wonderful and colorful information into new Zentangle classes for you.

So. . . after way too long. . . we have finally updated our class offerings from June thru Sept.  Please jump to the Classes page and see the new class schedule.  There are ‘The Basics’ classes, White on Black, Zentangle Blues, Journal Making, Meet-Ups and more. All of our classes are in Albuquerque at Scraps Galore (except one ZT101 class in Santa Fe).  We are offering classes during the week as well as weekends to fit your busy summer schedules.  Come and learn Zentangle with us.  It will make your summer even better.

Special Announcement:  We have Suzanne McNeill coming this Saturday June 11 to teach her FloraBunda techniques at our Meet-up at Scraps Galore.  We are so fortunate to have her, and seating is limited to 20. Advance registration is required.  Suzanne McNeill is a CZT, artist, author of more than 20 Zentangle books.  There were a couple of seats left, and a waiting list as of Saturday June 4.  So call Scraps Galore soon and reserve your space:  505-858-1080

Changes!

Changes!

Last year we finally got our business license for our llc:  ShadeTree Tangles.  We’ve changed the website of ‘dentangles’ to ShadeTree Tangles in order to keep everything in the same place.  So when you look for www.dentangles.com or shadetreetangles.com you will be directed here, at least for the foreseeable future.  At some point we may find time and energy to put up a brand new website.  Our classes are still here on the classes page.  And news will be posted here a little more regularly we hope!

Speaking of classes. . . we just met with Scraps Galore! and have times set for a bunch of new classes between now and June.  Watch for them to be posted soon.  All kinds of classes will be offered from beginner to advanced.  The only pre-requisite we have is that you take a ZT101 – The Basics class before any of our other classes.

We have been listening and know that you all want a Zentangle Meet-Up to meet with other Zentangle enthusiasts like yourselves and just work on projects, ask questions, learn new tangles, etc. So we are scheduling a time for that each month as well.  It will be shown on the classes page, although it’s not actually a class.  We will be there to help, answer questions, visit and catch up.  We hope you will bring projects to work on as well as to inspire all of us.

There have been a number of classes since the last post here. As time permits, we will post some pictures so you can see the beautiful work that has been done in classes from 101 to Organics.

Keep Tangling!
