Many folks that haven't had a Zentangle class from a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) will shout...
Zentangle is just glorified doodling !
I didn't just hear you say the "d" word???? The Zentangle method is different from doodling. Doodling is mindless - usually done while doing something else with no specific structure or method. The Zentangle Method,is mindful. Zentangle has a structured method of how to apply patterns in order to focus the mind. The process is done with intent, and the results are beautiful, intricate art pieces. Also, during the process you relax, focus and get into a state of well-being - healing art.
CZT's have been trained by the founders of The Zentangle Method in the concept which the art form was created.
Zentangle is the art method and "tangling" is what you are doing.
