Zentangle® is a relaxing, easy-to-learn method of drawing simple patterns in a defined area. It helps to promote focus, fine motor skills and a meditative stillness.
I just became a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) in June 2014 so that I may share Zentangle with others.
Zentangle was founded by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. It is a practice that has spread across the world. The creators say it best:
“Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. It is a fascinating new art form that is fun and relaxing. It increases focus and creativity. Zentangle provides artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of personal well being.” Zentangle® is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. Learn more at zentangle.com
There’s a wonderful article about the benefits of Zentangle in Psychology Today from March 2014.
The art of the practice and the healing that it facilitates energizes me. That’s why I decided to pursue a teacher certification. I became a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) in June 2014.
Enjoy my tiles.
