Technique Thursday: ZentanglesRead Now
I know lots and lots of folks who want to do creative work, but they say "I'm not artistic," or "I've always been afraid to draw," or "I can't." Well, if you are one of those folks, then this is the post for you! The video below will get you started, and it provides a short explanation of the origin of zentangles. As the name suggests, the process is meditative. My students love to tangle, and you will, too! You can do it anywhere! All you need is some paper, preferably cardstock or watercolor paper and a sharpie or pen. Show me what you can do!
“We’re in such a hurry most of the time we never get much chance to talk. The result is a kind of endless day-to-day shallowness, a monotony that leaves a person wondering years later where all the time went and sorry that it’s all gone. ”
― Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values
