ARTFUL MONDAYS explores.... Zentangle®A Zentangle drawing is an abstract drawing created using repetitive patterns according to the trademarked Zentangle Method.
(and to teach the Zentangle® Method you must be certified...)
In the meantime... let's explore...
True Zentangle drawings are always created on 3.5 inch (8.9 cm) square tiles, and they are always done in black ink on white paper with grey pencil shading. The invention of the Zentangle® was intended to make the act of drawing pleasurable, meditative and accessible to all.
- Its creation is unplanned. When you begin creating a Zentangle, you're encouraged not to have an end goal in mind. Rather, allow the pattern to reveal itself as you draw.
- Its creation of a Zentangle drawing is deliberate, yet unexpected. Each stroke should be made deliberately, rather than hesitantly. Instead of erasing stray marks, the artist should use them as the foundation for an unexpected pattern.
- Its creation is celebratory. Like meditation, the Zentangle Method is meant to feel freeing and healing. It's a way to celebrate the beauty of life. A Zentangle is timeless. No technology or special tools are used.
- Zentangles should connect those who make them to the timeless human endeavor of putting pen to paper.
