Give your kids the Zentangle series of books and watch them turn their doodles into a whole new art form. The technique is simple: start with a shape, such as a square, then mark off sections within the shape and fill in each with an intricate design - either your own or one of the dozens illustrated. The books also offer inspiration for decorating cards, paper dolls, and more.
From the Back Cover
New! Expanded edition includes 16 new workbook pages for practice and enjoyment.
Zentangle turns drawings into artistic design while reducing stress and improving focus. This relaxing process can be done anywhere and no ‘artistic’ talent is needed. Embellish journals, scrapbooks, art, paintings and cards. There is really no limit to creativity.
The Zentangle Basics book helps students and educators get started. It features step-by-step illustrations for 25 tangles. Also included are tips on how to relate Zentangle to learn spelling, math, social studies, geometry and art.
Traditional Zentangle includes a ritual to help get in touch with life. Tangles are used as learning skills for school children, as stress reduction for adults and they help develop dexterity. In addition, Zentangles can be fabulous works of art that resemble etchings.
“Anything is possible, one stroke at a time.” ™

One of the best features of the book, are the images of completed tangles drawn using the illustrated tangles. She also gives lots of ideas of how and where to use Zentangles in your daily activities.
No matter that I own several other Zentangle books, this is the one that I keep coming back to time and again. I highly recommend Zentangle Basics for anyone wanting to start this type of drawing. This book is widely available from most book retailers and even from some quilt shops and art stores.
