New type of art

Postby SierraLea » Mon Dec 10, 2012 3:58 pm

My sisters started working on something called Zentangles with their art teacher, and they look awesome.

Has anyone else tried these before?

They call it...Zentangles? Artistic meditation? While I won't deny that this sort of art is my favorite kind to do personally, there's a name and a product line for this?!

Somebody is trying to make easy money with that copyright. Either that, or they already have.

I do this kind of pen work all the time. I have one hanging on my wall. Nobody had to teach me how. I mean, I hope your sisters are having fun with it and all, but I hope they aren't spending extra money on it.

Don't worry. The guy is a family friend, and he's taught them a lot besides this, like how to paint a wall so it looks like you bashed through it onto a gorgeous beach. He teaches practical things as well as this, and they're making cards out of their best ones to sell at this little shop we have in my neighborhood.

That's cool. So does the, uh, method, make things exclusively black and white, or is there color involved, too?

Aw, brings back memories. I did this in art class when I was 10. Or tried, rather. My older sisters were always way better than me.
