Zentangle is an easy-to learn, relaxing, and fun way to create images by drawing structured patterns called tangles. They are unplanned, abstract, black and white pieces of art. Many artists have taken this a step further by adding coloured backgrounds or painting their designs.

Zentangle is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. As an art form and method, it was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. The process is a form of “artistic meditation” as one becomes completely engrossed in making each pattern “one stroke at a time”.
The creativity options and pattern combinations are unlimited.
