A gift of creativity

Those who say they are not artistic will feel differently after they experience the art of Zentangle. Anyone can draw with the incredible tools they give you to learn to let go. It all began when Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts had a conversation about her feelings as she drew patterns on a piece she was working on. Together, with their knowledge of art and meditation, Rick a little zen (he used to be a monk, a NY cab driver and many other things) and Maria a little tangle...their craft is spreading virally around the world!

From the website, www.zentangle.com:

What is Zentangle?
Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful i
mages from repetitive patterns. It is a fascinating new art form that is fun and relaxing. It increases focus and creativity. Zentangle provides artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of personal well being. Zentangle is enjoyed by a wide range of skills and ages and is used in many fields of interest. We believe that life is an art form and that Zentangle is an elegant metaphor for deliberate artistry in life. Explore our web site and learn how you can use this wonderful and uplifting discovery.
This is a sample of a "tile" made using Zentangle. A full gallery of images is available on their website. It's incredible to see the different styles and interpretations from each person.

See what they've been up to using Zentangle to benefit others:

Maybe you saw the article in the Telegram and Gazette recently, or perhaps you had the chance to chat with Rick and Maria at our fundraiser Cirque du Noir, where they collaborated with 4 other artists to create 6 amazing pieces to auction off for The Worcester County Food Bank.
