Zentangle Project Pack No. 16 - The 12 Days of Zentangle 2021 - Day 07

Whether we see it this way or not, every moment of our lives is an opportunity to learn. We had a delightful conversation with Alfie and friends about this very subject. Nomi shared with us a lovely quote that made us all think a bit.

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” –Benjamin Franklin

We discussed this idea in reference to today’s lesson. Maria shares a way to draw an old tangle in a new way. In the process of her teaching, she invites the community to explore this concept further. Now that you have seen this approach introduced in this lesson, what other tangles or tangling techniques can you use in a similar way? When we are introduced to something new in our Zentangle practice, we first process it, then we replicate it, and then when we take that information and digest it and explore it further in our own way. It is then that we truly learn. It was a wonderful discussion and at the end, Marasu was reminded of a quote she loves about learning. We agreed it was a perfect way to end our afternoon.

“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.’ –Socrates

Join us as Rick takes a playful approach on today’s lesson to create something precious, we can interact with as well as appreciate and have fun.

Welcome to the Zentangle Project Pack No. 16 and the seventh day of the 12 Days of Zentangle!

This Zentangle series offers us a moment to pause and reflect on the past year. 2021, like all years, has proven to be a time of growth. As each one of us continued with our journeys we persevered with strength, courage, resilience, and trust. In a year of rebuilding, we were given the opportunity to choose what we wanted to keep with us and what we wanted to leave behind. As the year unfolded, we hope you were able to lean on your Zentangle practice and focus on the beautiful things that came through. Together, in this series, we will in-crease our skills while navigating this part of our journey one stroke at a time. In this year-end series, we will be looking closely between the layers and folds of our Zentangle practice. As we score some new tools for our tangling toolbox, we will dig into some creative, tangled ways to celebrate and illuminate your Zentangle art.

We will be working with the materials in the Zentangle Project Pack No. 16, but we encourage you to follow along with whatever materials that you have.

  • It has been a great gift to myself to have become a CZT and share with with people who are so surprised by, well, everything about Zentangle. I share this preference for the Renaissance Zendala though in the beginning I found the renaissance paper quite different from the tiepolo so there was a period of letting go of one and embracing the other. It was well worth the time spent learning how to love this paper as well.
