Zentangle for Everyone

At all age groups, whether at public, private functions or formal school environments, creating Zentangle art has been associated with improved:

  • Handwriting
  • Eye and hand coordination
  • Creativity and personal expression
  • Problem solving
  • Cross-cultural understanding, using various cultural symbols such as henna patterns, Celtic knotting, amongst others.
  • Relaxation and focus
  • Confidence

The Zentangle Method can improve self-esteem and support individual confidence, creativity and cooperation in team efforts. Zentangle exercises can focus on areas such as:

  • Individual self-worth
  • Problem solving
  • Individual’s role within a team
  • Intentionally directing focus under stress
  • Accessing inner knowledge and guidance

Whether self-directed or in a clinical setting, Zentangle art provides a non-verbal modality for feedback, journalling, reflection and analysis, personal growth and increased confidence. Some applications include:

  • Addiction therapy
  • Attention deficit
  • Self-esteem
  • Anger management
  • Stress management
  • Pain management
  • Stroke or hand injury recovery
  • Symbolic journaling
