Many months of curious faces and prying eyes into my artworks and messing around with my precious and expensive art supplies all turned worthy for them!!! My experience with my own kid, who is 8 years old, makes me realize that there is no end to the inquisitiveness and readiness to learn anything new in the world. They make it compulsory and important above anything and everything, to have whatever they dream. And so when such kids, who are always ready and became very vocal about their desires, I had to schedule one part of my day just for them.
Sunday, November 12, 2017, Tangle and Inspire launched its first ever tangling workshop, specially arranged for the primary level kids at my colony. We also had a student who is preparing for a very tedious and stressed professional course. We had participants who never had comfortable experience using pen and pencil over the paper, but in the class, my whole focus was to share the power and potentials of the Zentangle(R) Method in a way that they could let go off their inner critic and enjoy the play of tangles and re-discover their hidden skills. It was such a fun morning.
Sharing few pics from the little party.
Within minutes of the Beginner’s class, peace and silence embarked and all of us got absorbed into the paper.
As the 3 Hour workshop was ending kids were all so happy and hopping around, with widened smiles. They could not believe that pen drawings and shading could be so much fun. By the end of the workshop, each participants were sharing how differently they saw their own drawings; how much more we can play with the tangles. We also learned to appreciate each other’s positiveness that we brought into the class. With filled goody bag of their art supplies and exercises to do, left the meeting. 😊
Tangle and Inspire, will try and conduct further such events for all aged groups.
