CROSSWALK TEEN ZENTANGLE WORKSHOP
This is a workshop we held weekly in 2014 at Crosswalk to connect youth with art and their community.
WHAT IS ZENTANGLE?
Zentangle, a purposeful, structured form of drawing that is similar to doodling, seems to support mindful states of being, but in a slightly different way. Reduced to basics, a Zentangle® consists of a series of repetitive strokes—straight lines, curves and dots—drawn on a three-and-a-half-inch square of high quality paper. Compared with the garden variety of doodling, Zentangle® is much more focused and deliberate, but still allows the “Zentangler” to be creative and free-form in using patterns, lines, shapes and shading. Preliminary studies and anecdotal reports seem to support the idea that Zentangle® is a “meditative” art form that actually induces relaxation and has an impact on self-control, mood, and stress reduction.”
CONVO SHOE ART WORKSHOP
