Transcript of ZENTANGLE SILHOUETTES
What is a zentangle?
A zentangle, or sometimes referred to as a zendoodle is a method of creating various interlocking patterns and designs.
What is a Zentangle? In a word, a doodle. A structured, contained doodle. The term 'Zentangle' was coined by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas when, one day, Maria described her experience, as she created her art, as "feeling timeless, free and engendering a sense of deep well-being". Rick recognized that she was in a meditative state and so Zentangles were born.
