Anything is possible, one stroke at a time!
When you see the word, Zentangle, you focus on the word, Zen, which makes you think of relaxing, maybe meditating in a garden.
Zentangle combines relaxation with drawing something beautiful, something that you can give as a gift to someone or keep for yourself.
Annette Chittenden, a Museum School instructor at the Springfield Museums, gives us an introduction to Zentangle Botanical Drawing. Zentangle drawing involves combinations of dots, lines, curves, and orbs in structured patterns that are easy to learn. Many find this method of drawing relaxing and a fun way to create beautiful images.
