HI! Last summer I discovered Zentangle® which has changed my life! I came across it at www.zentangle.com and was mesmerized by the beautiful art and I knew that was something I wanted to do. I ran out and bought as many Zentangle® books as I could find. Zentangle® is an easy to learn, fun, and relaxing method of drawing repetitive structured patterns. It only requires a 3.5″ x 3.5″ white paper, 01 Micron Pen by Sukura and a pencil. No eraser because there are no mistakes in Zentangle…just opportunities for new patterns. This was my first attempt at tangling (before I took a class) 🙂
My First Zentangle
Now, I CANNOT draw but it said it’s easy and anyone can do it and so I took a beginning class from a Certified Zentangle Teacher and came out with two beautiful pieces of art that I DREW!! Yes, I can draw Zentangle Art! There were 6 students and we did 2 Zentangle® tiles each. Each tile had 4 different tangles (patterns) on it. The most fascinating thing to me was that we were each shown how to draw the same tangle BUT each of our tangles were totally different and so creative!! It was our own art we were drawing that came from our minds! Just like in life, each person’s handwriting is different. We each have different personalities. Since the first time I saw Zentangle Art I secretly wanted to become a Certified Zentangle® Teacher. I was convinced if I could draw such beautiful images, then anyone could and I wanted to share this magic!
