The Zentangle art increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction with an increased sense of personal well being.
The Zentangle art is enjoyed all over the world across a wide range of skills, interests and ages.
The process of creating a Zentangle is a form of “artistic meditation” as one is completely focused in making each pattern.
The creativity options and pattern combinations are endless.
Zentangles are miniature pieces of unplanned, abstract, black and white art created through a very specific method by means of patterns called tangles.
Zentangles are not only exquisitely beautiful,
they are fun and relaxing to create.
The first important step in the ceremony of Zentangle is to relax and breathe deeply, bringing one’s attention to the process.
These are the first patterns learned by the Art teacher in a Zentangle private lesson.
They are very easy and relaxing.
This is the first project done by our students for a Peace Day poster in the main hall of the school.
The process is very simple and repetitive. Through the repetition of the same learned pattern, your mind can desconect and relax.
The teacher helps to create the whole picture
and the students trace, complete and finally, colour it.
During the Art class, in a very quiet atmosphere, the Art teacher explains in detail the patterns
and the way to do them.
The students, from 1st to 6th grade, really enjoy the process and, of course, the results.
In all the groups, the teacher can observe perfectly the attention, carefulness, fine motor and neatness in order to analyze their fine skills and possible attention problems.
During an Art Class, the students can apply any pattern to a given design, as these photocopies with the peace symbol.
Free expression of the Zentangle patterns in a plane paper.
Even when the correct method recommend small paper, "tangles", at school, we use the material that we already have, such as markers, crayons, pencils, plain paper...
These are the new patterns the teacher has learned in her last lessons.
COLOUR can be applied with different techniques that they're going to learn.
Sixth graders are very careful and great enjoyers.
New patterns are explained to all the groups, and in all of them we have amazing artists.
They aren't affraid of doing wrong,
everything is correct, because the quiet way to get the result is the main aim.
And all the designs can be used to decorate the school main hall for any celebration.
