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.
