Zentangle is a mediative art form that is easy to learn, and relaxing to create. Best of all, almost anyone can create beautiful images using zentangle techniques! It’s perfect for those who would like to increase their focus and creativity. I love that only a few key materials are needed, and they are small enough that I can bring them along with me for whenever inspiration strikes!
As a mom, I love how zentangle lends itself to being done in short bursts of time. Many times I am interrupted during the day, but zentangle tiles are small and can be completed in stages quite easily. They can be as elaborate or as simple as you’d like! There is no right or wrong way to zentangle!
I also love that the zentangle method is appealing to a wide range of ages. Many times I will start to use the zentangle method at our kitchen table, and the kids love to join in and sketch their own creations along with me.
- Zentangle Tiles — Artist tiles from Amazon, or these square coasters are great for those who are just starting out.
- Drawing Pens — This set of zentangle pens comes with 5 pens, 1 pencil, and 5 zentangle tiles included!
- Eraser (optional) — If “mistakes” are made, it’s best to continue on as a surprise. However, I do think these animal erasers are absolutely adorable!
