Her writing tastes lean the same as her reading which is to say all over the map.  Currently She has written six books she self published that are a collection of short stories all centered around the same characters. She has a number of works in progress, and in addition to publishing weekly at a newspaper, also has had short stories published.

Event #4 Zentangle Workshop with Ann Cannizzaro - November 17 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Ann Cannizzaro is an educator, artist, and lifelong learner living in Downeast Maine.  “Zentangle found me when I needed a way to find calm and inspiration in my life,” says Ann. “I was going through a difficult period and Zentangle helped me to find artistic flow and creativity when everything else was on ‘overwhelm.'” Ann Cannizzaro will teach participants about the inspiring and mindful drawing practice called Zentangle.  This popular drawing method is for everyone and anyone.  The eight-step process will lead participants to create miniature masterpieces, while learning about ‘tangles’, ‘tiles’, and ‘strings’.  Attendees will learn and practice everything they need to know to begin their own journeys of discovery and creative flow through drawing.

Simple Materials needed:

Pencil - a soft 2B pencil is fine; Eraser - pencil cap eraser works fine, or a gum eraser;  A good quality paper cut into 3.5 inch squares is preferred ( a notebook is fine too!); Pens - a fine line black pen is required ( other colored pens and even some gel pens, including white, will inspire more inspiration after you master the basics!)
