Morinville – The Morinville Art Club and Morinville Youth Art Club partnered for a Spring Tea and Art Show exhibit at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre Saturday. More than 50 people came through the doors within the first two hours of opening. The Artist’s Garden was a blend of artwork from young to old during National Youth Arts Week. Morinville Art Club member Monty Johnson created and demonstrated an acrylic painting and was on hand to answer questions. A number of other artists also spoke about their art.

The Art Club, sponsored by Sobeys Morinville, hosted a workshop on Zentangle in honour of National Youth Arts Week. Zentangle is a relaxing method of creating personalized artwork that can be applied to cream coloured canvas tote bags, quilt squares, mugs, blank white t-shirts, canvas sneakers, and other items. Kathleen Henderson, CZT from Canmore and Marlee Ritchee from Saskatoon provided the instruction on the art form. Zentangle, also known as Tangle, is a newer art form and Henderson is one of only five Certified Zentangle Teachers in Alberta. The workshop included a brief history of the origin of Zentangle, its philosophy, and terminology as well as an opportunity to learn four to six Zentangle patterns.


Valerie Loehde and Wilma Davis were working on their Zentangle creations at the Zentangle Workshop held Saturday at the MCCC.
