I will be teaching a class on ZenButtons in September at South Side Brushes. The September meeting is for people who would be interested in joining a group of artist painters. This is our membership drive meeting and we provide four simple painting/art classes choosing two that you can select to learn. The day begins with our hospitality coffee, tea and sweets. We have a raffle with beautiful artsy items, a Ways and Means table that sells useful paint tools, books, jewelry and many other cutesy and particle items. We have a show and tell of art painted and described by our members, always interesting to hear where, why and who designed the pattern for each piece. We also have a brief membership meeting. After our meeting, we pull raffle tickets and then have a nice $10 luncheon. After lunch we begin our painting projects, special for September we offer four of our members who each teach a different project. The above picture will be a sample of what I will offer to teach. The ZenButton class participants will be given 3 white tiles and a micron pen. I will have markers, colored pens, etc. to complete the project. The class is free to those nonmembers who come to our meeting and class that day. Anyone interested please contact me by email for any other information such as date, time and location.
This was the first ZenButton I received in the exchange. How exciting it was to find out it was designed and drawn by Marie Browning. Wow, how lucky for me to have received one of Marie's beautiful art. I was also blessed to have Marie sitting next to me for all the classes at Tangle U.
Here was my second draw from the exchange. Designed and drawn by Penny Beth Schwan.
The final design was by Susan Bowden.
|These are the ZenButtons that I made for the exchange at Tangle U 2018 in Portland Oregon. They are made on square Zentangle tiles and a Zendala tile. The top and bottom design was drawn with TomBow markers and Sakura Micron pen. The center round Zendala was painted with Derwent Inktense pencils and drawn with a micron pen.|

These were made by student friends learning to use a paint spinner to create lovely and colorful backgrounds on round and square paper tiles. The class lessons were to experiment with different papers and mediums. First they learned how to use the spinners using markers, pencils and inktense pencils. We didn't have enough time to Zentangle, however, they have a wonderful start with their colored tiles to fill them in with tangles at their leisure. It was a very busy class with a lot of different things happening all at once with each person. I love showing the results and benefits of using a variety of paper and mediums. The results are so different.

This was my first attempt using the spinner. As you can see the circles are not centered, I have had some problems getting my paper centered on the spinner, but I found a technique that is working. I do like the colors and patterns. I used black ink and prisma color pencils.
