About zentangle


The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns that almost anyone can do whether you think you have artistic ability or not. Adults and children alike can benefit from the Zentangle Method of drawing.


It 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.

To make a zentangle piece of art consists of a series of steps, supporting relaxation, focus and inspiration. All that is needed is a simple 01 Micron pen, pencil and 3.5” x 3.5” tile, or paper. There are no mistakes, no erasing...


“Tangling” is not doodling. When you doodle, your thoughts are elsewhere. However with the zentangle method, your focus is on each stroke, how the pen reacts to the paper as each stroke is drawn deliberately, and not having a preconceived idea of your final result. By following this somewhat unusual approach your creation is not restricted by your expectations
