Hahn Memorial Art Scholarship - Euclid High School
Senior, Jermaine Hawkins. Jermaine says, "I
grew up in a home where I was surrounded by art.
My father used to draw and he was talented. So
when I was growing up I would sit around for hours and
draw. I have chosen to major in graphic design
because I want to have a career that reflects my
personality as well as sustains a living. Even
though my career choice is not a fine artist, I plan on
creating and exhibiting work throughout my life."

-Tangling in Sacred Circles” held,
Saturday, May 6, 2017 with certified ZT instructors,
Launie McDevitt and Lisa Ruschman.
Mandala meets Zentangle in this journey to discover
"Sacred Circles". We began by creating our first
Zendala in traditional Zentangle black & white on a
pre-strung, round tile. Then we experimented by
creating abstract color backgrounds using spray inks to
create unique media for the afternoon lessons.
Using foundation principles of Sacred Geometry “The Seed
of Life” & “Flower of Life” we built a string on our
colored background to tangle, shade and highlight.
And the instructors brought pizza for a great lunch, to
keep our energy up.
See the colorful results...
