Active Minds Appreciate Zentangle®


I had a great time with my group of 18 Tufts University students on Friday. The classroom space was perfect, with a beautiful view of the city. 

I was invited by Fei-Fei Xu and Conor Ward to teach a Zentangle® workshop as part of their exhibit focusing on how the role of various art forms can positively affect those with mental health issues. The program was sponsored by the Tufts Chapter of Active Minds, which is a non-profit organization empowering students to educate others about mental health issues and to encourage help-seeking. This event was a celebration of art as therapy.

In addition to my Zentangle® workshop, there was a presentation about dance therapy, a reception with live artist statements, and a gallery of amazing art work on display. I thought this student-led event was impressive, and I was thrilled to have a small part in it.  It's so inspiring to watch the passion of young people in action!
