Project Description


I'm so excited to guide you through this creative journey!

After watching the video you will be able to create beautiful mandalas, using patterns inspired by the Zentangle® Method.

You will learn:

  • What supplies to use
  • How to prepare the background
  • How to draw the patterns / tangles Ratoon, A-Frame and Flux
  • The shading process
  • How to add highlights on a darker tile.

You will also be able to download the attached handouts containing:

  • A step by step guide to drawing individual patterns / tangles
  • A step by step visual guide to finishing the project
  • A reference sheet explaining the basics of Zentangle® method, including several links with more content
  • A guide through an additional challenge for those who want to draw more

If you are hesitant about starting, take a look at the photo of the drawings made by my seventeen-year-old daughter, my husband who hasn't drawn since elementary school and me as their teacher. Don't give up because you can draw too!



Upload a photo of your drawing in progress and finished project. Enjoy your work of art and share it with the world. If you share it on Instragram tag me @zen.linea. Join the community discussion if you have any comments or questions - I'm here to help.
