The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. We call these patterns, tangles. You create tangles with combinations of dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves and orbs. These simple shapes are the "Elemental Strokes" in all Zentangle art.
Zentangle patterns are unplanned, abstract, black/white art made up of beautiful patterns. According to trademarked Zentangle Method, true Zentangles are always created on 3.5-inch (8.9 cm) square tiles and are always done in black ink on white paper.
