Zentangle® is a new art phenomenon that is sweeping the nation and the world. It is being talked about in coffee shops, in classrooms, in doctor’s offices, on airplanes, on the internet, in bookstores, in shopping malls and on Pinterest and Facebook.
Everyone is wondering what this is, where it came from and what it does. And anyone who has tried it finds themselves HOOKED! Sounds INCREDIBLE!! Well I think it is and so do many thousands of others. Zentangle is definitely the talk of the town AND OF THE WORLD.
I am Brenda Shaver, a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT), trained by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, the founders of Zentangle, to teach this amazing art form. And I would love for you to come along with me on my journey. Stay tuned for my weekly blog updates and I do have lots to blog about.. BECAUSE there is always something happening in the land of Zentangle. Everyday a Zentangle enthusiast, whether be it someone from our head office, another CZT or a student, is creating something new, inspiring and unique; a new tangle (pattern) or a new Zentangle Inspired Art piece. Our journey will never end and I PROMISE you will enjoy it and have lots of fun along the way.
Recently Maria and Rick designed a beautiful art postcard depicting the “Birth of Zentangle” with the following words done in Maria’s calligraphy . These words definitely do describe the whole concept and process.
“Creativity, Art, Focus, Simple, Complicated, Magic, Mysterious, Ritual, Powerful, Beautiful, Alive, Encourages, Practice, Calms, Perspective, Life skill, Metaphor, Mindfulness, Relaxing, Inspiring, Intriguing, Fun.. AND it just feels good”…Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts.
