Master Class - Day 3

We'll wrap up (for now) our Master Class series with some images from Day 3. We expect more images as attendees send us photos of their completed projects. (Hint!)

One by one, people added to the large Zentangle "Beetle Cat." Since there is no up or down to a Zentangle, we asked Nick (Molly's husband) to build us an easel on which we could rotate a large frame. He used an industrial strength lazy susan. (If you want to make your own, check this source.)

It's almost complete and it's awesome! We will use it to create a fundraising poster for IYRS.

People continued to work on their large lokta sheets.

Here's a finished photo we received of that last one.

We also just received this comment from an attendee about the impact of working large.
I want to extend a heartfelt “Thank You” for creating and holding the Master Class in Newport, RI. It was a great learning experience, not only on the physical level, but on an emotional level as well.

I’m not sure if any others have expressed the emotional processing it took (at least for me) to create on such a large and elegant format? I understood intellectually the lesson you teach in the CZT training about using the best products available to create ones’ art on but, I’m not sure the true emotional meaning of this statement really registered until I was faced with such elegant products in such a large size undertaking. I’m a bit overwhelmed still as I look at the art we created just a little over a week ago and am still in awe of the outcome. Again, Thank You.
For more photos, check out Fina Man's "Day Three" portfolio here.

We are so grateful to all the wonderful folks at IRYS who made this event possible. (Here's three of them!)

We also want to thank Nancy, Sue and Lonni for all your help in a successful and smooth running event filled with great fun, food, photos and friendship.

Thanks for linking the lazy susan info. We are planning a sidewalk Zentangle demo for September. This will come in handy!

I love looking at this site every day and have followed your last Master's class. The work on good paper was exquisite.

Some time ago I decided that I would never again work on cheap paper. I once did a magnificent piece on poor paper and was so disappointed that I hadn't used good paper. I save all the scraps of good stuff so that I can play on it, and if it is a masterpiece then I'm not sorry.

I love the white in the colored paper series. Was this done all in chalk? AMAZING!

These were done in black and brown Pigma Micron pens (size graphic 1 and 08....and white chalk pencils. Aren't they just breath-taking!!!!!! Maria (and Rick)
