Want to learn how to make these beautiful GemTangles with just your basic Zentangle kit and some colored pencils? It’s easy, just sign up for our GemTangles class on April 2 at Scraps Galore. Go to the Classes page for all the info. Hurry tho, class size is limited. We will provide you with the supplies to make one or more GemTangles of your very own!
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.

Last week we had a very nice Zendala class with some of our regular students. They created beautiful zendalas on both white and black tiles.
I am fortunate to have some of my Zentangle work hanging in four places right now: Home @ the Range Gallery in Bernalillo, NM; Placitas Artist Series at the Presbyterian Church in Placitas, NM; St Marks Episcopalian Church in Albuquerque, NM for their Small Works show; and at the NM Art League in Albuquerque, NM for their Biologique show.
Here are a couple of pics:
Please check the Classes page for all the new classes: ZT101, ZT701 on Fabric, ZT-Holiday Mini-Workshop, ZT De-stress Workshop, ZT601-Organics All these wonderful classes are scheduled between this Saturday Nov 7 and Jan 16. Hurry and sign up to reserve your space.
It’s been a while since we had some brand new classes, but we’ve been busy developing new and exciting ideas along with finding new places to have classes. Here’s our class schedule between now and Feb 2016:
We drove five hours to outside of Payson AZ a couple of weeks ago for a memorial. I had wanted to make something for her brother but had not had time. So before we got there, I took my emergency Zentangle kit and made this tile while riding in the car. I started with tangles that begin with letters of her name, but somehow got off track. . . but the idea is there. They put up a small alter outside in the beautiful desert forest and a glass hummingbird high in a pine tree. This was my small offering for Amber:
