Zentangle® is a meditative process of creating art, wherein simple shapes and lines combine to make a complicated and interesting final piece of artwork. The focus of Zentangle is on the process of creation, rather than the end result. The beauty of Zentangle is that there is no right way or wrong way. If you can draw a line and a circle (perfectly or not), you can Zentangle. Zentangle is an art concept that is engaging, approachable, and fun enough for someone who has never picked up any art tools or created a piece of art, yet is still meditative, productive, and creative enough for an advanced artist to enjoy. While many popular Zentangle books share tips, inspiration, and final artwork, there are few that break down Zentangle into a step-by-step process. Structured to be part instruction, part inspiration, and part doodling, The Art of Zentangle will first demonstrate how to create Zentangle art by showing intricate patterns broken out into several steps. After artists have warmed up and are ready to give it a try on their own, they’ll be invited to practice creating their own Zentangle designs on the beautifully designed blank pages of this inspirational sketch journal. A short gallery of final artwork and several inspirational prompts are included in this comprehensive introduction to the new, inspirational world of Zentangle.

Margaret Bremner was never really interested in being anything but an artist. She loves colors, patterns, visual textures and designs. Margaret has been married to her husband for 33 years. The couple recently returned home to Quebec after spending two years in China teaching By day Norma J. ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect place to start Zentangling! I bought this book and some sketch pads for my Mom for an early Mother's Day present and it was a perfect resource for leaning the basic techiques and had plenty of inspirations for how to put the basics into use on larger projects. The basic concepts are quite simple, the process of using repetitive pattern elements is calming and focusing and my Mom, my sister and I were all drawn in (pun intended) to the art of Zentangle. I'm not normally able to 'draw' much past a stick figure, but I was so impressed with how artistic a few little patterns can become when combined into a larger piece. It works great as a 'pick up where you left off' kind of project and I will now keep a small sketchpad and pen in my purse for an inexpensive and portable way to fill unexpected waiting times and 'take five' breaks.
