Zen, what?

What in the world is Zentangle?

Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured repetitive patterns.

Almost anyone can use it to create beautiful artwork. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being. The Zentangle method is enjoyed all over the world across a wide range of skills, interests and ages.

No artistic “ability” or “skill” is required. Anyone who can hold a pen and write the alphabet will be successful using the Zentangle method.

Look at the artwork behind my name at the top of this page. That is an example of Zentangle. You can do it too!
