Kimberly Michael, CZT Tangles: Studio Grapheme Classes in Fine and Meditative Arts using the Zentangle method with local Certified Zentangle Teacher Kimberly Michael

Classes are in session! Please visit my web site http://tangles.studiographe.me/classes for current class schedule or to contact me for private or group workshops. Even if you’ve been tangling on your own for a while (yay!), I promise I’ll be demonstrating techniques you won’t find on the internet.

Mission: We may not all be great artists, but we can all enjoy the process of creating art. My goal is to bring out the inner artist in everyone who has ever been made to believe they are not creative. We all have a muse.

garlic cloves

This week's challenge on the SquareOne fb group is to use the tangle "garlic cloves," which I did a couple of times. at left is my shot at it using knightsbridge & printemps on a black Bijou tile. It's a little dark, I took the photo at night with artificial light. I am not in love with the way the white pen shades under graphite, but I do like the depth achieved by putting an ink line around the edge of the "cloves." [ 83 more words ]

A tangle I drew this weekend using the guidelines available on the wonderful Adele Bruno's site Tickled to Tangle, home of the weekly "It's a String Thing" challenge, aka "IAST." This is IAST 162, using Ing, Hollibaugh & Bubbles. I've taken a bit of a break from tangling in favor of watercolor in the last month or three, but I am finding it just as rewarding as ever, and managed to whip out 9 tiles over the weekend.

wow, researchers are really doubling down on this topic lately! it's a good thing, maybe we can get serious funding for arts in schools* back when the body of proof becomes overwhelming. meanwhile, check out the post (with links for doubters) on the usefulness of even crappy art creation on mental health and wellbeing.

another swap in the mail this week. I did not love this one, which was set up to use just two "strings" or outlines for the design. I chose the one I like the best, though I'm not super thrilled with either one. I think I was carried away by valentine exhuberance. regardless, the tiles came out pretty well, all things considered.

Zentangle tiles

Zentangle ecru 3.5" square tiles are die-cut from a mould-made, acid-free, 100% cotton, heavy-weight fine artists' paper with a beautiful vellum surface finish. We chose this surface because it is ideal for creating Zentangle art. The cushioned surface welcomes the pen and holds a fine line without bleeding; its texture grips your pencil's graphite as you blend your shading. This paper is some of the finest paper available today. [ 50 more words. ]

today I participated in the chalk art contest at the San Gabriel Lunar New Year festival. It was my first time doing a large-scale chalk image, actually, the first time I've done chalk art with intention since I got married. I don't really think playing with sidewalk chalk with my kids counts. anyway, the project went well in spite of only having 4 hours to work on it. [ 317 more words. ]
