Come discover Zentangle with Mahe Zehra CZT.
Zentangle® is a new style of drawing in deliberate steps with a pre-learned toolkit of patterns. This art form has been developed by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas.
What I love most about this art form is that all the patterns are based on simple lines, circles and shapes. Anyone can do it. The beauty of Zentangle lies in the way these patterns evolve from their simple building blocks. Different patterns are put together to create small ‘tiles’ or square drawings.
Zentangle art has been used by artists from all over the globe and from all art fields. They have incorporated Zentangle art into everything from mixed media, paper crafting, scrap booking to home décor projects. A simple search on Google images will reveal the vast world of Zentangle art!
Zentangle art has also been used by kids all over the world to have fun and make paper toys.

Tangles can also be enhanced in several different ways. We will talk about four of these methods and share some examples.
