Soothe away the stresses of the day and create some Zentangles. These will prove to even the most doubtful of you that you are artists! Zentangles are small pieces of unplanned, abstract, black & white art created as a means of artistic meditation. They can be viewed from any orientation and are non-representational that end up as stunning structured patterns. They can be completed in less than 15 minutes and done anywhere at all. A perfect activity for all minds, small and tall, young and more experienced... let the zentangling begin.
Not ready for the structured pattern element of a Zentangle? Then opt for the more free-form relative, Zen Doodle. Let your pen or pencil wander wherever it likes across the page. Suddenly those doodles have real articstic presence!
Whatever you create, don't forget to share them - we could create a Torrisholme Tangle Gallery!
