Any pen ( I recommend Micron 01 or Micron PN and for filling in Micron 08), paper (multimedia or any paper-if using in a notebook you may need another paper under it so the pen does not go through to the next page) graphite pencil (I do not recommend mechanical), white charcoal pencil (optional), blending tool (I recommend a tortillon (you can use a cotton swab I also have a video on TikTok how to make your own).
The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. These are called patterns, tangles. You create tangles with combinations of dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves and orbs. These simple shapes are the “Elemental Strokes” in all Zentangle® art. These patterns are drawn on small pieces of paper called “tiles.” We call them tiles because you can assemble them into mosaics.
Zentangle® art is non-representational and unplanned so you can focus on each stroke and not worry about the result. There is no up or down to Zentangle® art. If fact, you can most easily create Zentangle® art by rotating your tile as you tangle — always keeping your hand in a relaxed position. You don’t need to know what a tangle is going to look like to draw it. You just need to know the steps. The result is a delightful surprise.
As you use the Zentangle® Method to create beautiful images, you likely will enjoy increased focus, creativity, self-confidence and an increased sense well-being.
We believe that life is an art form and that each person is an artist. The Zentangle Method is an elegant metaphor and model for inspiring deliberate artistry in life.
Pencil strings and borders can be ignored and pen marks can’t be erased. Even if those pen marks aren’t initially what you might have intended (we never call them “mistakes” in the Zentangle® Method), you can use them as inspirations to go in directions that you may not have otherwise explored. Instead of looking at them as mistakes, we reframe them as “opportunities.” By avoiding common blocks to creative flow such as: self-criticism, fear of failure, lack of immediate positive feedback, worrying about outcomes, frustration with lengthy training, lack of inspiration and doubts about what to do next, you can create beautiful art right away.
