    You don't have to have any previous artistic ability to "Tangle". Even though a tangling creation can look intricate and complicated, once you learn how its done you'll realize how simple it is. By using repetitive patterns and deliberate strokes tangling is an easy way to create beautiful pieces of art. Studies show that tangling increases mental retention, stimulates creativity, improves ones mood, and can be calming during stressful situations. Its like taking a nap and waking up refreshed! Plus, this meditation art form is fun! Please bring a pack of sketch artistic tiles, an 11x14 mixed media pad, B, B3, B4 pencils and 005, 01 and o8 black markers. All are available at area art & craft stores.

    Ferdinand Victor Eugene Delacroix 1798-1863


    Delacroix was a French, Romantic painter, muralist, lithographer and a friend of Gericault. In contrast to the Neo-classicists of his time, he used optical effects of color and expressive brushstrokes. He took much of his inspiration from Rubens. It's important to note that he traveled to Africa for inspiration for some of his exotic works, which was a Romantic thing to do in itself.
