Zentangles

I’ve decided to learn about creating Zentangles. Their website claims that the method is a relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It claims to “increase focus and creativity, and provide artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being” (Zentangle www.zentangle.com).

I think it will be suited to learning via NGL as there are many online resources including websites, newsletters, blogs and YouTube videos. I have the benefit of a real person to consult with and she will demonstrate the materials used and suggest some helpful sites. Already I’ve noted some interesting similarities between Zentangles and NGL and plan to explore these as my learning journey progresses:

  • anything is possible one stroke at a time
  • deliberate focus
  • unknown outcomes
  • no predetermined solution
  • abstract
  • portable
  • inspirational.
