In case you missed it! Kumihimo Japanese Braiding

Our January 10th meeting was so much fun! Rhonda Crosman, one of our board members, presented a talk and demonstration of Kumihimo Japanese braiding. She provided discs and yarn  for all attendees to make their own friendship bracelets to take home.  If you missed the meeting, you can click here to download the instructions for the braiding.

In Case You Missed it! We had a great member meeting in April!

This month’s meeting included an Artist Social (Zentangle & Doodle demo with Lynn Diagnault), an Art Swap (with great stuff!) and our Mini-Art show.

Congrats to Toby Myers the favorite art piece of our Mini-Art show!

Have you ever been in a room with over 30 people and have complete silence? This was the wonderful experience we had during our Zentangle & Doodle demonstration with Lynn Diagnault at our April member meeting.  Lynn discussed the history of the zentangle. To sum it up, a Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. It is a fascinating new art form that is fun and relaxing. It increases focus and creativity. Zentangle provides artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of personal well being. Check out the slide show below for the results of this zentangley-doodle experience from our wonder artist members!
