The Zentangle method of drawing is easy to learn, relaxing, and fun.The results are fast and beautiful. Although the amazing abstract images may look complicated, you will discover that they are achieved quite simply and are highly individual. As you grow in this practice, you may find surprising wells of creativity you forgot you possessed. It is a wonderful means of artistic expression for artists and "non-artists" of all ages.

I did not set out to create a new tangle, but I found that as I continued to draw, it created itself. I reminds me of holly, thus the name. This tangle grows randomly and is built on itself, but it could easily be used as a border or ribbon. I have shaded and embellished a few different ways in my sample tiles. That, of course, only leads to more ways yet to try.


Tangle Time Class Change

Dear Zentangle Artists,
If you are interested in attending Tangle Time at Ben Franklin in January, please note that the First Sunday is New Year’s Day.
Ben Franklin has been kind enough to let us have the classroom the following Sunday, January 8.
The class time has been changed to 10:15-12:15 to allow you time to buy materials before class if you need to.
Bye for now.
