Zentangle is a “Meditative Art form”, that is easy to learn and is a relaxing method of creating beautiful abstract art using structured patterns. It is basically about being mindful and present... Zentangle requires no artistic skills, if you can write your name you can create a Zentangle.
Apart from creating beautiful art, practicing Zentangle method has wonderful benefits. Here's some of the benefits enjoyed...
Helps with Relaxation
Helps with Insomnia (Improved sleep by creating Zentangle art before bedtime)
Creating beautiful works of art
Nurtures and develop creative abilities
Improves hand-eye coordination

Zentangle is an easy art that can be done by all age groups. I conduct in-person and online workshops with original Zentangle supplies.
I conduct online workshops on Zoom, Skype, Google meet and Facetime.
