Had a lovely time in a Zentangle® 101 Basics class with four new tanglers last Saturday. I am always pleased and surprised at how each student takes to tangling and does it with his or her own style, even when I teach them all the same basic Zentangle method.
More on that another time. Back to getting happy... I wanted to let you know about a class I'll be teaching at the Anacortes (WA) Center for Happiness on February 17, 2013. The link for more detail and to sign up for the class is http://anacortescenterforhappiness.org/zentangle-workshop/.
The class will be another Zentangle 101 Basics class, plus a bit. The Sunday afternoon class is a 3-hour format, from 1 to 4 pm, rather than the more standard 2-hour Basics class I usually teach. As noted on the website, there is a class minimum of 10, so if you are interested, don't delay registering so the Center can get an accurate count.
What is the Center for Happiness, you say? According to founder Laura Lavigne, "the Anacortes Center for Happiness is both a movement and a place. One of Washington's very first Social Purpose Corporations, the Center's stated mission is to "provide joy, growth, connection and kindness to its patrons and anyone associated with it - as well as the local, state, national and world community." As a movement, it is an invitation for you, wherever you are, to join us and participate in raising your own happiness, as well as the world's happiness."
The world can always use more happiness, and so can each of us. Zentangle is a life-skill and tool that can make a difference in your "happiness quotient." So come on, sign-up and get happy!
