Zentangle® is a beautiful art form that anyone can create from repeating patterns. Using the finest archival materials and following a simple set of steps, participants will be able to achieve a relaxed state of focus by concentrating on drawing one line at a time.
Zentangle® was created by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts. They set out to design a system to make this enjoyable kinesthetic meditation available to everyone. Their system intentionally removed many of the barriers people have to making creativity and relaxation a part of their lives.
- Zentangle® materials consist of just a few items which are easily portable. Zentangles® can be created while waiting for an appointment or standing in the grocery line!
- All decision-making is broken down into easy choices so as not to be intimidating. The structure allows creativity to soar!
In a Zentangle® workshop, students will experience that anything is possible, one stroke at a time! Zentangle® can be learned by children, adults and especially those who consider themselves "non-artists".
In addition to increasing relaxation and creativity, Zentangle® has been used by some to:
- lower blood pressure
- decrease insomnia
- improve anger management
- reduce anxiety
- enhance group cohesion and
- to deepen a spiritual practice.
Yoga for your brain!
