Share Your Thoughts > Love the book!

I just love the Zenspirations book. This method that Joanne has developed makes it easy for even a beginner to create beautiful works of art. I'm totally addicted. Sitting down and creating something special for someone brightens my day and it is especially gratifying when the project turns out so nicely, thanks to the new drawing techniques that I learned in this book. I'm so glad I discovered it when I did. Just recently I had the opportunity to teach a three week zenspirations series at our local school's art class and the kids loved it. All the kids from 2nd-12th grade participated and they all loved it. They were so proud of their accomplishments. I later heard mothers talking about how their children came home and tried to teach them how to do it. The gift goes on and on.

Hi Regina,

Thanks for your comments; I'm so glad that the Zenspirations drawing techniques were a hit with the kids. I actually had my son (then 11) and his friends try out all of the instructions in the book to make sure that they were 'kid-friendly'. I'd love to see what your students did... maybe we can include some of their work in our "Share Your Work" gallery. Please send photos to me at

Happy patterning!
Zenspirationally yours,

I recently bought a few of your coloring/workbooks. Presently I am working through the book "Flowers" - I am loving this. Thanks for your instruction about ZT. I love the pictures; some I color just as your have drawn and others I embellish. This is just so much fun. Thanks for all you do.
