The next meeting for TSAA is on Thursday, March 8, 6:30 pm in Studio 2 of the Huntington Museum of Art (behind main building). We would love to see our members--first general meeting in 2018. Remember that your attendance will count toward reduction in your cost for Art in Park in June.
Linda Clifford (a TSAA member) will be sharing Zentangle.
Zentangle is referred to by the certified instructors as, "Doodling with a purpose." Their key phrase for people who don't think they can learn it is, "Anything is possible, one stroke at a time" of which I am living proof.
Benefits of Zentangle: Relaxation / stress reliever
Modifying behavior / anger management
Nurture and develop creative abilities Improve eye/hand coordination
Increase attention span and ability to concentrate
They have done studies that show if some people do Zentangle while listening to a lecture, they will retain more information from the lecture than if they just sit & listen. I have tried this & have found it to be true.
I don't pretend this is fine art, but it is relaxing, more so than many other hobbies. furnished by Linda Clifford.
Please note: the February TSAA newsletter will be forwarded via email to members in the next few days. Members without a current email address will be mailed a copy at their directory address. It will be sent out this week.
