Zentagle

Zentangle with Jo Mortland


Drawing with Zentangle-like designs is easy to learn, fun and a relaxing way to created unique images using simple lines.  The different “doodles” are used to fill spaces, which can be any shape or size.  By dividing the larger space into smaller sections, and then filling each section with patterns, a unique image is created.   They can be made any time, any place, with paper and a drawing tool.  For this session, we will focus on circles and lines to see some of the many possible combinations.  The designs are meant to be organic – no two are alike. You can invent your own!  There is no right or wrong, just the Zen-like enjoyment of creating unique images.  To see some of the possibilities, search for Zentangle online.  You will be amazed!  Dinner includes an Italian beef sandwich, chips and dessert.

Collage Workshop with Jo Mortland


Collage is one method of self-expression through images.  Using scissors, glue and magazine photos, it is possible to create unique art pieces.  Other items can easily be added to make your artwork “mixed-media.”  Some suggestions are text, beads, sequins, ribbons, or lace.  You can also use photos that are special to you (photocopies please, not originals) of pets, vacations or people.  Each collage is an original, with meaning just for you.  In the workshop, you will learn how to make various images look like they belong together, by using color, line, shape, and texture to blend them.  Tips on how to cut out individual images mean you take a picture and use just the parts you want.  Collages can be made for inspiration, or just for the joy of working with beautiful pictures.  Dinner includes a cheeseburger, coleslaw and dessert.
