Danielle DeRome

Danielle has been arting and teaching ”forever!” She started life in California, but grew up in Barcelona where she trained in ceramics and enamel on copper at the Escola Massana. Later, she got “serious degrees” - a B.S. and an M.S. in Environmental and Systematic Biology at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Through all that, she always had at least one foot in the classroom and another in some art project. Her Zentangle class proposals reflect her love of messy art play, dingbatty tangles, world travel, and the outdoors.

Play + Exploration + Mental & Physical Stretching + Focus + Meditation
