Life is like an ever-shifting kaleidoscope – a slight change, and all patterns alter. -Sharon Salzberg Project Pack 17 is inspired by the kaleidoscope of our lives. A kaleidoscope is an instrument that has tiny pieces of colored glass or plastic encased between flat pieces of clear glass and mirrors that are specifically arranged so that the small pieces of colored glass or plastic reflect and create beautiful patterns. The bits of colored glass move as do the patterns, never duplicating the same pattern twice.
Project Pack honors the artistry of the patterns they form as they pair and layer with others to form new patterns and create works of art.
Taking advantage of the geometric shapes of tiles, we will gradually guide you through adding tangles to the tiles and watch how they interact with other tiles to create meta-patterns that change as you rearrange the tiles, like a kaleidoscope. We will explore a fun selection of tools that allow us to dig deep into layering shades of gray with accents of jewel tones. Join Zentangle as they use this Project Pack to create amazing Zentangle art and use it to gain perspective to see that even though our lives are constantly evolving, each moment offers us fleeting moments of beauty followed by another and another, ultimately reassuring us that there was beauty behind us, beauty within and beauty ahead.
