Sharla's Comments:
Confused about the difference between Doodle & Zentangle®

**Those of us who Zentangle® shy away from the term doodling because we understand that the principles transcends doodling because Zentangle® is teachable.

Zentangle is a method that breaks down each pattern into its simplest shapes: (lines ////, curves ((((, dashes ---, and circlesÒÒÒ).

Instruction is SIMPLE shape by shape.
Each shape contributes to the finished Zentangle Pattern.

Zentangles from shapes done in stick figures

This teachable technique supports those who have been intimidated by drawing and / or doodling or those who want to expand their personal expression and art by tapping into its greatest benefits: Unlocking creativity through repetition, focus, and relaxation, much like hand or machine quilting, sewing, embroidery, scrapbooking and more!

Zentangle® to boost confidence, learn how to focus and get in touch with your intuitive creativity while exploring (without intimidation) abstract designs that are uniquely yours. No two designs come out the same even when following the same theme and patterns!

BulletClass Benefits

BulletExploring Zentangle® patterns

BulletWith guidance
Learn how to create one-of-a-kind Zentangle® tiles.line
