One Zentangle A Day : A 6-Week Course in Creative Drawing for Relaxation, Inspiration, and Fun
The Zentangle method was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas as a way to practice focus and meditation through drawing by using repetitive lines, marks, circles, and shapes. Each mark is called a "tangle," and you combine various tangles into patterns to create "tiles," or small square drawings.
Each of the six chapters explores a different aspect of Zentangle:
Basics and Enhancements
Tangles and Value Patterns
Geometric and Organic Patterns
Understanding and Using Color
Defining and Using Style
Creating the Rest of Your Zentangle Journey
Each exercise includes new tangles to draw in sketchbooks or on Tiepolo (an Italian-made paper), teaches daily tile design, offers tips on related art principles, and contains an inspirational "ZIA" (Zentangle Inspired Art) project on a tile that incorporates patterns, art principals, and new techniques.
Drawing Zentangles is a relaxing and replenishing diversion that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels. In addition to its soothing benefits, a Zentangle practice can also help with self-image, phobias, addictions, pain management, conflict resolution, and coping with grief.
Step away from the daily hustle and untangle with a Zentangle.
