The Zentangle Method is an easy, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction, and creates a sense of well being.
Zentangle came into my life about 4 years ago and it has been transformative in many different ways. Ever since I could hold a crayon, I have been creating art. Some of it was academically good but there was always something missing. What was missing was the element of Zentangle. It gave structure to my work but also gave it a sense of freedom. It fostered within me the skills to better express myself as an artist.
Zentangle has been beneficial for my health as well. I have struggled with chronic pain in my adult life. Zentangle is so engrossing that is takes my mind off the pain and plants me firmly in my creative process. It is a welcomed relief. I have noticed that my focus is sharper and when I am practicing regularly my overall outlook on the world is brighter. It has been a wonderful addition to my yoga and meditation practice a well.
They say that to lead a happy life one should know their purpose. There are few things in this world that bring me as much joy as watching someones creative process fire up. It is electrifying to me. Sometimes i am buzzing with energy after I teach a class. With that said, teaching Zentangle definitely is part of my life purpose. It is my sincere hope that you will give it a try and see the undiscovered artist that lays with in you.
