Zentangle® Meditative Drawing Method

A Zentangle® is a abstract drawing created using repetitive patterns.  Almost anyone can use Zentangle® to create beautiful images.  The process increases focus and creativity, and provides for a relaxing art experience.  Zentangle® provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well-being.

Your Unique Guide

Hi, my name is Nancy Dawes and I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT). I dreamt of drawing my whole life - I was just not very good.  

Three years ago I finally decided that I was going to learn to draw!

I found the Zentangle® drawing method when I was searching for online drawing programs.  The designs were so interesting and beautiful that I couldn't wait to find an instructor in my area so that I could take a class.

Well, I suppose the rest is history! After taking all the classes I could find locally I decided to become an instructor so that I could help others learn to draw with the Zentangle® method.  In November 2013 I journeyed to Rhode Island USA to take my certification.

The Zentangle® method is an east-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.

Your Zentangle® Journey

The best way to learn the Zentangle® drawing method is with a certified instructor in a class with other interested students.  I encourage you to seek out an instructor in your town for a Zentangle® Basics Class.  

We all teach the same basics class the way Rick and Maria taught us during certification.  It is an important foundation to get you started on your artistic journey.  Check the instructor list at Zentangle.com for an instructor near you.

Since I know that not everyone lives near a certified instructor, I set up this website to help you along your art journey.

I will share tips and tricks for making your designs come alive. You will also get step-by-step instructions using all kinds of art tools to create beautiful art tiles, wonderful tangled cards and mixed media journals.

Come along with me and we will play together in the world of Zentangle® creating beautiful art!
