CZT: Certified Zentangle Instructor

Review by Sharla Hicks, Certified Zentangle Teacher

Wow,One Zentangle A Day by Becka Krahula is the book I wish I had written.

If you can not find a Certified Zentangle Teacher in your area and you really want to learn Zentangle, then this book will guide you through the daily practise of Zentangle with excellent exercises set up in a progressive manner starting at the beginning and moving on up. It covers shading, how to approach your tangle with a balanced use of value, shading and design. Look closely at the Table of Contents below. For some, this book may be a little wordy (note the instruction page below is the format of most pages) BUT, the written commentary details the where, what, when and why of the pictures in easy to understand language. Like I said, this is the book I wish I had written. Well done Becka!


One Zentangle A Day
Back Cover Information

One Zentangle A Day is a beautiful interactive book teaching the principles of Zentangles as well as offering fun, related drawing exercises. Zentangles are a new trend in the drawing and paper arts world. The concept was started by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas as a way to practice focus and meditation through drawing, by using repetitive lines, marks, circles, and shapes. Each mark is called a "tangle," and you combine various tangles into patterns to create "tiles" or small square drawings.

Each of the 42 daily exercises illustrates how to create new tangles to draw in your sketchbook, offers tips on related art principles, and presents a Zentangle tile using those patterns. You will also find a beautiful Zentangle-Inspired Art (ZIA) projects that experiments with patterns, art principles, and new techniques.

The final chapter and beautiful gallery show how Zentangle can be combined with other art and craft forms to create mixed-media artworks, jewelry textiles, ornaments, and more. See how Zentangle drawing will sharpen your focus, expand your creativity, and enhance your skills!
