Zentangle® - What is it?

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

as described by co-founders, Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas.

 You may be thinking.... "Isn't this just doodling?"  I've always been a doodler, and I am also someone who practices the Zentangle® Method.  I believe both are interesting, valuable art forms, but they are different. 

Doodling is generally something your hand is doing, while your mind is occupied with other things. For example -  I'm talking to a friend on the phone and within minutes I've covered my desk calendar with random doodles. My mind was on the phone call, and without much thought or intention, my hand was making marks on the paper. Doodling.
 
The Zentangle® Method is an intentional, mindful practice of creating beautiful images by repeating structured patterns.  It is a style of meditative drawing that inspires focused attention, creativity and relaxation.  This simple, yet powerful art form is being taught and practiced all over the world. People of all ages and abilities are benefiting from The Zentangle® Method as a way of reducing stress, managing pain, experiencing joy through creativity and improving focus.  Why not see what a little tangling can do for you!
