Truth be told, I had no idea what I was getting into. "Just show up two hours before your next class begins, and we will be set up for the interview," he said.
Early the following Saturday morning, with Kevin (sound man) and Tahnee (who filmed, interviewed, and later compiled the video) we sat and chatted about all things Zentangle. Fortunately for me - a novice at all of this - my daughter Nancy was on hand to remind me to breathe and to smile.
Tahnee had researched Zentangle and her questions were both thoughtful and thought provoking. I found it easy to tell my story and share my love for tangling.
After my spot was completed, Tahnee stayed for the beginning of my first class and she captured some scenes of the class in progress.
I was pleasantly surprised at the final result of the morning ~
Tomorrow marks the 11th anniversary of Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas' first public Zentangle Class. (Click here for my post about last year's celebration here in central Florida)
I wonder if they ever could have imagined that in such a short time, their idea would have spread so rapidly, so far and wide. Today, there are well over 1,500 Certified Zentangle Teachers around the world - on all 7 continents.
Rick and Maria not only had the idea of a new art method, they knew just what to do with their idea. They payed attention to it, they nurtured it, and they shared it. They freely shared it.
I am indebted and I remain tickled to tangle :)
