Zentangle is a method of drawing patterns. It was started by Rick Roberts and artist Maria Thomas with the purpose of combining meditation and art. This type of drawing with repetition promotes concentration and creativity. The original zentangles were completed on small 9x9cm squares but now people draw the patterns inside of different shapes. It is such a great thing to do at home since you don’t need a lot of art supplies. Here are some steps to follow:
- Draw an outline of a shape-this can be anything from animals, diamond, square, circles, flowers etc. The example I used was a heart. I filled the whole page with the image of a heart.
- Divide the image into different smaller sections with lines
- Draw repeating patterns inside of the different sections. Try to do some patterns with darker lines or shapes that are filled in to make it look more interesting.
