50 Inspiring Drawings, Doodles & Ideas for the Meditative Artist
Welcome to The Art of Zentangle(R)! Whether you’re an expert tangler or are discovering this innovative art form for the first time, inspiration abounds in this guided journey through the world of Zentangle thanks to the creative expressions of four talented Certified Zentangle(R) Teachers. In addition to learning the basics, including understanding key terms, drawing basic tangles, and creating unique patterns, you’ll discover what “strings” are and how to see them everywhere you go. Step-by-step projects demonstrate how to create Zentangle mandalas, Zentangle Inspired Art, and tangled wall décor. Best of all, you’ll learn how to relax and enjoy the process. With creative prompts and ideas designed to inspire, you’ll soon discover just how fun and rewarding Zentangle can be. Open practice areas throughout the book invite you to try the techniques described, as well as put your creative ideas and tangling skills to use.
Zentangle(R) is a meditative process of creating art, wherein simple shapes and lines combine to make a complicated and interesting final piece of artwork. The focus of Zentangle is on the process of creation, rather than the end result. The beauty of Zentangle is that there is no right way or wrong way. If you can draw a line and a circle (perfectly or not), you can Zentangle. Zentangle is an art concept that is engaging, approachable, and fun enough for someone who has never picked up any art tools or created a piece of art, yet is still meditative, productive, and creative enough for an advanced artist to enjoy. While many popular Zentangle books share tips, inspiration, and final artwork, there are few that break down Zentangle into a step-by-step process. Structured to be part instruction, part inspiration, and part doodling, The Art of Zentangle will first demonstrate how to create Zentangle art by showing intricate patterns broken out into several steps. After artists have warmed up and are ready to give it a try on their own, they’ll be invited to practice creating their own Zentangle designs on the beautifully designed blank pages of this inspirational sketch journal. A short gallery of final artwork and several inspirational prompts are included in this comprehensive introduction to the new, inspirational world of Zentangle.
