Class Description:

Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from structured patterns. It is a fascinating art form that is fun and relaxing. It can help to increase focus and creativity. Zentangle® provides artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of personal well being. No “artistic” talent or background is needed. Both those new to the Zentangle® method and those with experience are welcome. In this class the focus will be on “Zentangle® in Reverse” using white ink on black tiles. Students will learn the beginning steps for creating Zentangle® art using black paper tiles, white pen, and white charcoal pencil. A variety of patterns (called “tangles”) will be taught. Two tiles will be completed in the class and additional black tiles and the pens and pencils needed will be sent with the participants to continue their exploration of the Zentangle® method at home.

 Instructor: I have always been interested in drawing, but have never taken an art class. My attempts to self-teach using books and the internet just resulted in frustration. In May of 2011 I discovered Zentangle® which has opened a new world for me in creativity and confidence. I was getting so much out of the Zentangle® process that I wanted to share the experience with others. So in Oct. 2011 I attended a seminar in Providence, RI and became a Certified Zentangle® Teacher. I love seeing how even people with no art background are pleased and excited with what they can do with Zentangle®. I have taught previous Zentangle® classes in Houghton, Hancock, Iron Mountain, Manistique and Suring, WI.

Class Description:
Origami, the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, has been practiced since the 1600's and is as fascinating and intriguing today as it has been all those years. Fumiko Stretton learned the art of Origami as a child and has been involved in the art since. In this workshop she will lead participants through the steps to transform a flat piece of paper into their own three dimensional Origami crane. Students may choose to create another paper sculpture as well. Fumiko has chosen paper for this class that is the same as is used in Japan and will send participants home with several extra sheets and instructions so they can construct more pieces on their own.

Fumiko Stretton Instructor: Fumiko was born and raised in Japan, coming to the United States as a "war bride" to Pennsylvania with her husband Richard Stretton. They eventually moved to Garden to be near his sister and husband. Fumiko is very involved in the Garden Gallery and the Village Artisans and is on the Garden Gallery Board. She creates intricate origami earrings and feathery light mobiles, as well as wonderful crocheted table cloths and runners, and other creative items.
