Who started Zentangle®? The Zentangle® art form and method was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas and is copyrighted. Zentangle® is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. Learn more at zentangle.com.
What is Zentangle®? "Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. Zentangle is a journey of self-discovery with a focus on the process of drawing. The Zentangle method provides a structured path for creating art from patterns by breaking them down into elemental strokes. It requires no recognized artistic ability. Zentangle can open a door to art and creativity for people of all ages and abilities.
The Zentangle drawing method is a non-verbal way to communicate ideas, thoughts, and feelings. Thereis no right or wrong in Zentangle (just beauty). Students are encouraged to discover, explore, and embrace their individual styles. Although each student will follow the same basic Zentangle instructions, the resulting artworks will be unique. The individual artist in each student (and teacher) is encouraged and given an opportunity for expression."
Who can do Zentangle®? This is a wonderful gift from Rick and Maria to all of us. Anyone can "tangle." It is addictive and you find yourself tangling anything that stands still long enough.
