What is Zentangle®?
“The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.
Almost anyone can use it to create beautiful images. 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.”
A Zentangle® is created from black and white abstract art using repetitive patterns on a 3.5-inch by 3.5-inch square of white paper. Anything outside of those parameters is “Zentangle® inspired.”
What is ZIA (Zentangle®-Inspired Art)?
ZIA can be on any surface of any size, and can also incorporate specific shapes, such as animals, or objects such as feathers, whether as a complete design, or as the outline that encloses the patterns, or utilizes colour.
What is a Zendala?
