Untangle with Zentangle! (Workshops)
Saturday, October 14 – 12:00 & 1:00
Sunday, October 15 – 12:30 & 3:00
This meditative art form takes doodling to the next level, one stroke at a time. Patterns unfold before your eyes on 3×3 tiles, creating a design that is unique to you. Developed by a yoga/meditation practitioner and a design artist, the Zentangle method can be a metaphor for the life process of change, transformation and regeneration. Nancy will guide you step by step in creating your own Zentangle tile.
Creative Mindfulness: Exercising your Creative Muscle (On-stage)
Saturday, October 14 – 10:30
Sunday, October 15 – 11:30
Creativity is not just the ability to wield a paintbrush but a state of mind that requires cultivation and nourishment. This method, developed by Barbara Grace of the School of Modern Psychology in Australia, is not just theory. It is a lens to view life problems and inspire growth and change, being demonstrated through over 30 years of practical applications with people from all walks of life. Nancy will share how the keys of creative mindfulness became the link between her work as art therapist and Pilates/movement teacher and how a simple exercise can open a door to your own personal transformation.
