Zentangles are a great way for a person of any age to sit down, draw whatever comes into their minds, and relax!
WHAT EXACTLY IS A ZENTANGLE?
If you haven’t heard of them before, the name can sound a little funny! A zentangle is a “patterned” drawing made through the use of intricate and creative simple drawings. Think of it as a quilt, if you will. Quilts are made up of several patches and those patches come in different sizes and shapes, and within those patches are different designs and patterns. That’s essentially what a zentangle is as well. It’s just a fun way to create a fun and up-lifting drawing!
“When you create in a Zentangle way, you create a beautiful piece of art. You also can deliberately create a mood, a focus, a state of mind.”
A FEW PATTERNS TO GET YOU STARTED
I drew up six different basic zentangle patterns to get you started…keep in mind that there are HUNDREDS out there, but the best patterns are the ones that you come up with yourself!
