Transcript of "Zentangle Project for Introduction to Art"
I. Overview and description:

can learn to Zentangle. As the name implies, it's a Zen-like way
of creating images through repetitive patterns and shapes.

consciously and deliberately. We are always making
"marks" (thoughts, words, deeds) in our life.
There is no eraser in life and there is no eraser in Zentangle.

you make what seems to be a mistake, you can then build on
that event as a new pattern and go in unexpected and exciting
Element of Art: Line
