Give your kids the Zentangle series of books and watch them turn their doodles into a whole new art form. The technique is simple: start with a shape, such as a square, then mark off sections within the shape and fill in each with an intricate design - either your own or one of the dozens illustrated. The books also offer inspiration for decorating cards, paper dolls, and more.

Zentangle turns drawings into artistic design while reducing stress and improving focus. This relaxing process can be done anywhere and no ‘artistic’ talent is needed. Embellish journals, scrapbooks, art, paintings and cards. There is really no limit to creativity.
The Zentangle Basics book helps students and educators get started. It features step-by-step illustrations for 25 tangles. Also included are tips on how to relate Zentangle to learn spelling, math, social studies, geometry and art.
Traditional Zentangle includes a ritual to help get in touch with life. Tangles are used as learning skills for school children, as stress reduction for adults and they help develop dexterity. In addition, Zentangles can be fabulous works of art that resemble etchings.
