Paint in Alberta 2012

Some months ago I was contacted by the organizers of the annual Paint in Alberta convention in Calgary who asked if I'd do some Zentangle classes there. I hadn't heard of the PIA event before, but... of course, I'd love to come! I offered a 2-hour Introduction class and a 4-hour Zentangle-inspired Mandalas class. I had a lovely time, drove home on Sunday, and am financially slightly ahead. Good all 'round. :)

Here's my nametag. No surface is safe.

Here are a few class photos.
Two students working on tiles.
Everyone's first tiles (they are actually black ink)

The beginnings of a mandala


  1. I think I need to seriously start saving so I can have a trip to one of your classes & a CZT training............ it's all very new still here in the UK. I'd love to know how to make a Mandala. Been to the local library this morning & for books about Celtic history & knotwork.
    Hope you get some rest too.

    1. Hi Paula, there are a few CZTs in the UK. Check the Zentangle website under "Learn" to see if anyone is near you.

  2. I love "tangles" - your students did beautiful work!
