In the words of the creators of Zentangle, Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, the Zentangle Method is
"is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. We call these patterns, tangles. You create tangles with combinations of dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves and orbs. These simple shapes are the "Elemental Strokes" in all Zentangle art. These patterns are drawn on small pieces of paper called "tiles." We call them tiles because you can assemble them into mosaics.
Zentangle art is non-representational and unplanned so you can focus on each stroke and not worry about the result. There is no up or down to Zentangle art. If fact, you can most easily create Zentangle art by rotating your tile as you tangle -- always keeping your hand in a relaxed position. You don't need to know what a tangle is going to look like to draw it. You just need to know the steps. The result is a delightful surprise.
As you use the Zentangle Method to create beautiful images, you likely will enjoy increased focus, creativity, self-confidence and an increased sense well-being."
As a Certified Zentangle Teacher, I’ve been teaching people of all ages in Spain and the UK since 2018. My classes have allowed several hundred people to begin to learn this method and who have responded with pleasure and amazement at what they have done and the effect it has had on their sense of well-being.
Let me unlock the artist within you through the relaxing and meditative art of Zentangle.
