    • Waldemere Fire Station, upstairs meeting room

    We will be doing something a little different for the June meeting -
    Patsy Monk
    will lead us in an exploration of Zentangle!

    To those of you who are familiar with this form of expression, it will be an opportunity expand and grow, while for those of us who have never done it, it will be an opportunity to try something new.

    In some cultures Zen tangle is viewed as creating a sacred space. Others referred to it as having a relaxed focus in the present. Not only is Zen tangle a way of creating beautiful pieces of art, but it is added benefits to help us through the hectic pace of today's lifestyle.

    Studies show that this type of activity increases mental retention, stimulates creativity, improves one's mood, can be calming during stressful situations and can be used as a tool for anger management. For individuals who deal with complex information, practicing Zentangle resets the brain as if you had a nap and woke refreshed.

    Zentangle promotes self-confidence by the act of hand-eye coordination: drawing a line on paper, expanding it into a pattern and transforming the patterns into an expressive design. It's fun, creative and good for you!


    "The Brown Bag Challenge" deadline has been extended!

    Because some members were unaware of the challenge, and we don't want to leave anyone out, you can bring your bag of tiny treasures to NEXT month's meeting (on June 14th) and we'll have the judging in July.

    So, please  bring in a lunch-sized brown paper bag with 8 to 10 items from your art supply stash. The items do not have to be new, but do try to find the types of things you would like to find in your own bag! We will all exchange bags at the June meeting and then we will make something from the items we have in the bag we chose. You’re allowed to add other items from your own art supplies when creating your art, but the challenge is to incorporate all of the items from the bag into your piece of art. We’ll have until the next meeting on July 12th to complete the project. At that time we will vote on our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices and give out prizes to our talented winners! So look around your craft rooms & art studios and gather up some interesting goodies!!! Good luck to all!

    • 26 Jun 2016
    • 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
    • Waldemere Fire Station, upstairs meeting room

    This will be an open Playday. Feel free to bring your own projects to work on in the company of friends. It's a great opportunity to exchange ideas with our peers and perhaps even get some "out of the box" insight into our own work!

    This will also be a good opportunity to work on the "Paper Bag Challenge" which is due at the following meeting on July12th.

    See you there!
