Product Description

One Zentangle A Day is a beautiful interactive book teaching the principles of Zentangles as well as offering fun, related drawing exercises. Zentangles are a new trend in the drawing and paper arts world. The concept was started by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas as a way to practice focus and meditation through drawing, by using repetitive lines, marks, circles, and shapes. Each mark is called a "tangle," and you combine various tangles into patterns to create "tiles" or small square drawings.

This step-by-step book is divided into 6 chapters, each with 7 daily exercises. Each exercise includes new tangles to draw in sketchbooks or on tiepolo (an Italian-made paper), teaches daily tile design, and offers tips on related art principles, and contains an inspirational "ZIA" (Zentangle Inspired Art) project on a tile that incorporates patterns, art principals, and new techniques.

          I borrowed this book from my library and after renewing it twice I decided that I couldn't live without it and decided to buy it. It is truly the best book and really set out well and easy to follow.

              "After a day spent playing with your toddler and trying to understand her unique babbling language, your nanny deserves a little relaxation time. Introduce her to the newest art craze: Zentangle. It's a method of art mediation, where you draw complex repetitive patterns (kind of like the doodles you used to make when you were bored in school). But these drawings become beautiful works of art." - Tiffany Smith
