I am a multi-media artist working in acrylic, drawing, watercolour, encaustic, sculpture, installation and of course Zentangle® and Zentangle® Inspired Art. I am a Certified Zentangle® Teacher (CZT) which means I have learned the process during an intensive course in Providence, Rhode Island, taught by the founders of Zentangle ®, Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts and Maria’s daughter Molly Hollibaugh.
Only Certified Zentangle® Teachers (CZT) are authorized and qualified to offer official Zentangle® classes and workshops.
More about Zentangle®:
Zentangle® is an easy-to-learn, relaxing way to create beautiful non-representational, interesting images by drawing structured patterns one stroke at a time. It was developed by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas in 2003 as a way for anyone to access their creativity and as a type of visual meditation and practice. They believe “life is an art form and the Zentangle® Method is an elegant metaphor for a deliberate artistry of life.” You don’t even need to know how to draw to do it! Anyone can do a Zentangle® as it is taught one step at a time. Some will obviously have more of a flourish with it but children, seniors, artists and non-artists alike can do it.
More information is available at the website Zentangle.com as well as many other places on the internet.
Zentangle® is fast becoming a trend in the artistic and craft worlds. According to Shutterstock, Zentangle® is #5 in Design Trends for 2015 rising at 214%.
