What is a Zentangle?


“The Zentangle Method is an easy to learn, fun and relaxing way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.” Zentangles are miniature pieces of unplanned, abstract, black and white art created through a very specific Method from an ensemble of simple, structured patterns called tangles on a 3.5-inch (89 mm) square paper tile. Zentangles are not only exquisitely beautiful, they are fun and relaxing to create. The process of creating a Zentangle is a form of “artistic meditation” as one becomes completely engrossed in making each pattern, deliberately focusing on “one stroke at a time”. The creativity options and pattern combinations are boundless. And anyone can do it! The Zentangle Method “increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being. The Zentangle Method is enjoyed all over this world across a wide range of skills, interests and ages.” As Margaret Bremner has written, “One of the lovely things about Zentangle is that it isn’t supposed to be anything. Even more, it’s SUPPOSED to NOT be a something. Zentangle is simply beautiful patterns playing harmoniously together.”
