CT-aRt - Zentangle Lettering with the Young Women From My Church

I had a group of girls from church at my house this week learning Zentangle lettering. I taught this class in the same way I did my First Friday Zentangle class. We used the same videos and handouts from Joanne Fink.
These girls (and leaders) did great!! At the beginning of class one of the girls said, "I don't really do art. My sister is an artist, but I can't draw". Of course I told her we don't say "can't" in my art classes--this is a supportive, positive environment. :) This same girl by the end of class was asking if she could take extra notecards home and then said, "I'm going to draw like this ALL the time!" Music to my ears! I love it!

In our church the kids have rings and other things with the letters C T R on them. This reminds them to Choose the Right. So the girls called our class CT-aRt. We started with the basics of Zentangle, then we did Joanne's butterfly, and then we did the letters, focusing on 'C', 'T', and 'R'. And then the girls went from there adding their own creative flair to it.

Here's a few pics of their amazing work... (including the CTR at the top of the post)

Zentanlge is a great art concept to introduce kids to art and lettering. And Joanne's videos are fantastic. She breaks it down into very do-able steps.

What a fun night with these darling girls and their wonderful leaders!!
