Square One: Purely Zentangle Group
I found and joined a new Facebook Zentangle group named “Square One: Purely Zentangle” and I like it a lot. I think you will too if you’re into Zentangle, or if you are interested in creating art in the relaxing, mindful Zentangle way, read on.
What’s so special about this Facebook Group?
This Zentangle group is good for beginning tanglers and advanced tanglers alike. The founders of Square One: Purely Zentangle, are Jenny Perruzzi and Chris Titus, who are both Certified Zentangle Teachers, and had the vision for the group to return to Zentangle in it’s original form. Chris wrote, “We are going to keep it simple here; no color, no ZIA, no frills…purely Zentangle. We love all the different ways Zentangle has meandered itself into our artwork and our creativity, but here we celebrate the meditative moment it brings through a little white tile, a pen and a pencil. We are happy to have you share your stories and experience with us. Let us know how you began and where you are now in your Zentangle journey. But most of all, share your Zentangle tiles with us. We love seeing your work! Our only requirement is you stay within the parameters we’ve provided in the group description. So let’s go…back to Square One.”
I love that all 3.5” x 3.5” white Zentangle tile photos are welcomed, they do request that the names of the tangle patterns are listed (if we know them) for easy reference by other viewers.
Each week, there will be a weekly focus tangle called ONE. The first ONE tangle is Cadent. So go to Square One: Purely Zentangle, sign up and participate. You will be getting in on a cool FB Group at the beginning. You do need to be approved for the group, but that should not take long. If you are into pure Zentangle, then this is a FaceBook Group you will definitely want to join, after all – as the founders of Zentangle, Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas would say, “Zentangle is spoken here”.
Why do I like this Zentangle group?
I like reading peoples stories and I love seeing others tiles and ideas. Seeing other tanglers work helps me to expand my knowledge and improve my own tangles. I especially enjoy reading about the changes Zentangle has made in the lives of fellow tanglers. Of course, I like sharing my 3.5” white square tiles too. I like that the group is intended for purely Zentangle, because I find that some people think Zentangling is ‘just doodling’. It is not, and this is a place to actually see what Zentangle is in it’s purest form.
