Zentangle® is a meditative process of creating art, wherein simple shapes and lines combine to make a complicated and interesting final piece of artwork.

This was fun to check out and get into. I am not very good at drawing. Ask to to draw a person, animal, a scene, etc and forget it. This starts you off with simple lines that you can grow with at your own skill level and imagination. This book teaches you to start with a basic concept and to just keep growing until you are satisfied. This really is stress free. This book is great for beginners and even has more advanced art like drawing a fairy and all the extras she comes with. Animals, squares...more
Very basic. Some ideas but doesn't really bring anything new to the table.

I had so much fun with this book! I have zero artistic talent, but even I could do this! It had step by step directions for what look like complicated designs, but a very doable when broken down. The repetitive patterns really do inspire peace of mind and I ended up with some neat little creations. This book has definitely inspired me to look more into this subject and learn more techniques.
a good intro to zentangles, geared more towards students because it's more like a workbook.
Great fun! This is just what I needed at this particular time. It gives you the perfect way to merge your creative self with your meditative self.
Best Zentangle book I've seen. It gives step by step instructions, plus shows inspirational uses. By far my favorite zentangle book.
