Tangles with Zentangle
What is Zentangle?
The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun
way to create beautiful images by drawing structured
patterns. We call these patterns tangles .
Zentangle art is non-representational and unplanned so you can focus on
each stroke and not worry about the result. Zentangle
provides artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of
personal well being.
How do I get started with Zentangle?
To make a Zentangle, start by drawing a light square border
around the edges of your paper with a pencil. Next, lightly
sketch a simple string, or a curved line or squiggle, which
will lend structure to your design and elegantly divide the
border into sections.
