If drawing certain tangles doesn’t work so smoothly, you can find many tutorials on the Internet. Beneath you can see such  tutorials by  Melinda Barlow.

All tangles and strings are described in  different databases. You can find them under the Item” usefull links” in the menu.

Zentangleart is available for everyone. It is definitely not a competiton, on the contrary. The real Zentanglespirit will give you nice, relaxing moments.

Have Fun with every step, while drawing and not only with the final result!
