April Art at the Library

Artist Trading Card Art at the Library this month is all about zentangles.

"Zen" as in the meditation tradition.

"Tangle" as in the intricate paths of our pens as we draw.

Does this sound complicated? Well, it isn't really. We start with a blank ATC card:
Then draw 3 curved lines:
And start filling in the spaces with simple designs:
After that we decorate the smaller shapes:
So why am I giving out instructions before we meet?

Because drawing like this is fun. Certainly. You know.
But drawing in a room with others is wonderful. It is a good time multiplied. And you deserve that.

So, we will see you on Saturday afternoon, 2 - 4 PM, at the Rockport Public Library, O.K.?

Not just fun, a good *unblocker* when the brain decides it wants to shut off and not cooperate when it come to ART!
Nice pieces!
