Luna- Posted October 23, 2010 Report Share Posted October 23, 2010 Here's something therapeutic to try; I can really recommend it! Please come back and comment if you tried it.Zentangling is structured doodling. It’s an art form which is like active meditation. Very absorbing (you ‘zen’ out), fun and you end up with a little piece of art. No artistic experience or ability needed. Materials needed: Pen, pencil and paper.Here’s an introductory How-To (scroll down about a quarter of the page to see the basics.)Start with simple patterns: circles, squares, whatever you like to doodle. It can be as plain or as fancy as you want. Don’t be intimidated by the fancy patterns, many of them are surprisingly easy once you break them down (if you even want to use them).There are any number of You-Tube videos if you want to see it demonstrated.If you’re stumped for ideas, here are all the patterns (“tangles”) your heart could desire.A therapist writes on emotional responses to zentangle art.To give credit where credit is due:The Zentangle® art form and method was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas.
