Zentangle & Tweens

A week or so ago, I had a chance to teach at Laurie's Art Studio in Westerly, RI. Among the students was this 12 year old girl who listened intently and paid attention to every mark I made on my tile. The class was 2 hours long. Every now and then, I would walk around to see what each tile looked like. The differences were enormous, as they should be, but this young girl, Kelli Gentile, worked feverishly to create her Zentangle. Frankly, I found her enthusiasm very inspiring. The other teens and tweens in the room were enthused as well, but Kelli was taken by this art form. At the end of the evening, she thanked me for the class and left.
A few days later, I received a message from the studio owner, Laurie MacKenzie, who attached the drawing Kelli had done in her usual art class. I was thrilled. After I requested permission to put the work up for all to see, I waited patiently for an answer. Kelli has agreed to share her Zen Fish with all of you. I hope you like it as much as I do. You go Kelli!! Great work!
