Dance Plus

When students surpass their teachers . . . .
 
It's thrilling to see what folks created for Laura Harms' 100th challenge with divadance.

Imagine the tangles of the future. They will be increasingly difficult to find (we had it easy to get all the simple ones in!).  But, oh, they will be spectacular! Just look at how Zentangle has blossomed in the last few years . . . unfettered creativity coming out of people, many of whom never knew it was within all along.

Throughout this Zentangle community we see directions and inspirations we never considered along with enthusiastic passion and creativity. Your Zentangle inspired art creates an exquisite positive feedback loop that inspires us all.


It was only fitting that we also be part of this challenge. We feel that it's our service to society to enable anyone to discover and inspire their artist within and then to go beyond what we have accomplished. It's the way of this world.  

Thank you so much for playing with us and each other on this ongoing and unfolding Zentangle adventure.

Thank you for your inspiration.

Rick and Maria, big hugs to you, it's funny how Zentangle fits into my everyday thinking, my life changed for the better when the Zentangle bug bit! Even though I wasn't sure what I was looking for, I knew when I found Zentangle.

Thank you for creating such great tangles. I had a lot of fun with them making the diva challenge 100. I am participating in Zentangle since august 2012, and I am addicted to it. Never thought I could make such beautiful drawings. Thank you for opening my eyes.

The fun and joy of this art form is never-ending!! Even after years of 'playing' with Zentangle, I never cease to get amazed at where it takes me, and where it takes others. Every day I hear people tell me how creative they are NOT. I know for a fact it's simply not true. Zentangle has opened the doors of that space in anyone who wants to go there. NEVERENDINGTHANKS to both of you for all you have given to SO many!

Thank you, Rick & Maria, for another great tangle. I'm just one of the people that was sure I could not draw and that alle changed by your zentangle method. THANK YOU for giving my life a new and wonderful direction (at a moment I really needed it).
