Zentangle Meditative Drawing with Joyce Amend

Zentangle is a meditative process of creating art, wherein simple shapes and lines combine to make beautiful and interesting artworks. If you can draw a line and a circle (perfectly or not), you can Zentangle. The focus of Zentangle is on the process of creation rather than the end result. It is both fun and stress-relieving. Zentangle embraces beauty and accepts imperfections. This absorbing art form can be enjoyed anywhere and everywhere.
