What is Zentangle?

Breaking down the word starts to give an idea ….
Zen – Buddhist meditative philosophy for balancing the mind

Tangle – describes the act of creating a piece of art

Other explanations include
Doodling with some structure
Drawing for people who think they can’t draw

You’ll probably make up your own after a few weeks…….

The goal of this art practice is to achieve calm. It was developed as a style of drawing, mainly abstract, that uses repetitive patterns and represents an artistic method of relaxation for many.

Basic tools required

• Zentangle tiles
• Black pencil
