And on top of it, I'm simultaneously interpreting it in ASL for my Deaf friend tomorrow night! Which reminds me that I need to look up the sign for "shading" and "outline." I had already posted on the Certified Zentangle Teacher forum a question about the sign commonly used for "Zentangle." Two responses came back: a "Z" signed with the dominant hand in the "L" space of the other hand (like drawing on a tile) and a "T"-hand signing a "Z" in the air (for Zen and Tangle.)
I'm really very excited and have been practicing my own tangles and tiles to get ready. (Below is the frame I made for signs, etc.) The kids are excited, too, and have begged to help. They're both going to come towards the end and teach their favorite patterns.
Wish me luck!
