About two years ago I took a zentangle class taught by a Certified Zentangle Teacher, or CZT. I was hooked! A tangle is a series of strokes, six or fewer, that when put together, form a pattern. You can read more about zentangle and the founders, Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts, on www.zentangle.com. Traditional zentangles are done in black and white on a 3 1/2" square heavy paper tile. In the class, we also delved into zentangle-inspired art, using watercolors and painters tape as a background, then removing the tape and tangling over the top. New tangles are being created all the time, and I subscribe to several e-newsletters. I even tangled my tennis shoes!
