I have fabulous news to announce today! I am one of several recipients of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs Minigrant for 2014. I will use my award to attend “Tangle University 2014” in Portland, Maine this spring (April 25-27). This conference is open only to Certified Zentangle Teachers and boasts a national reach. Many thanks to the Arts Council of Greater Lansing for facilitating this fantastic opportunity from the state. This professional development effort will help make me a better, more well rounded Certified Zentangle Teacher. I am so happy and excited–not speechless–and THRILLED!
