Description

Take your doodles to a whole new level with this best-selling and preeminent guidebook to the meditative art of the Zentangle, featuring the incredibly beautiful and inspiring artwork of author Beckah Krahula. This step-by-step book is divided into six chapters, each with seven daily exercises.
 
The Zentangle method was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas as a way to practice focus and meditation through drawing by using repetitive lines, marks, circles, and shapes. Each mark is called a "tangle," and you combine various tangles into patterns to create "tiles," or small square drawings. 
 
Each of the six chapters explores a different aspect of Zentangle:
  • Basics and Enhancements
  • Tangles and Value Patterns
  • Geometric and Organic Patterns
  • Understanding and Using Color
  • Defining and Using Style
  • Creating the Rest of Your Zentangle Journey
Each exercise includes new tangles to draw in sketchbooks or on Tiepolo (an Italian-made paper), teaches daily tile design, offers tips on related art principles, and contains an inspirational "ZIA" (Zentangle Inspired Art) project on a tile that incorporates patterns, art principals, and new techniques.
 
Drawing Zentangles is a relaxing and replenishing diversion that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels. In addition to its soothing benefits, a Zentangle practice can also help with self-image, phobias, addictions, pain management, conflict resolution, and coping with grief.

Step away from the daily hustle and untangle with a Zentangle.
