Zentangle art at Olive Hyde
Submitted By Diane Leys
Fremont artist Barbara Cronin will be the featured speaker at the Olive Hyde Art Center on Wednesday, October 24 from 10 a.m. to noon. Cronin creates unique pen and ink designs often referred to as Zentangle art. Zentangle art is an easy-to learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful works of art through the drawing of structured patterns.
Cronin has an extensive art background, having studied ceramics and photography at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Philadelphia College of Art. She received training in mechanical drafting from the College of DuPage and was a technical illustrator for an engineering firm. She is a certified Monart instructor and has worked for the Monart School in Fremont. Currently Cronin teaches autistic students at COIL, a charter school in Fremont. She recently joined the Tuesday painters at the FAA gallery in Niles.
Participation in this program is limited. Call (510) 651-4441 and leave your name, phone number, and e-mail address if you would like to attend. Upon registration you will be given a list of supplies. During the presentation Cronin will explain what a Tangle is and her interpretation of her designs. She will show samples of finished Tangles and Tangle paintings. She also plans to demonstrate how to make a small tangle and everyone should be able to finish a note card size piece of art.
This program is sponsored by the Olive Hyde Art Guild. There is no charge to attend and refreshments will be provided.
