Zentangle is an easy to learn, relaxing, and fun way of creating beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. The Zentangle method increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction, and instills a sense of personal well-being. Learn the history and language of the art form and, step-by-step, construct many “tangles” (patterns). Instruction will develop the ability to use the Zentangle method in your daily life, as a meditative art form, a jump start to your creativity, an enhancement to your journal, to incorporate pattern into your other projects, or simply for fun!
