Zentangle Basics

Suzanne McNeill's book, Zentangle BasicsCZT® Suzanne McNeill’s first Zentangle® book, Zentangle Basics, is particularly geared for educators and their students.

In this handbook, Suzanne gives educators tips for getting children and teens started and recommends cardstock and specific pens in sizes other than those used in traditional Zentangles®. The 25 patterns demonstrated with step-by-step drawings include 8 of the “official” Zentangle® patterns. The rest are Suzanne’s own creations.

The book is 20 pages including covers and measures 8.5″ x 11″. Every page is fully illustrated with tips showing “how to relate Zentangle to learn spelling, math, social studies, geometry and art.”

Zentangle Basics is ideal for educators wanting to do something different to help their students learn. Suzanne gives creative ideas on various ways to use Zentangles, for example using the outlines of the states as the strings to help “students memorize the shape and position of states on the map.”

Suzanne has posted several of the tangle patterns from Zentangle Basics on her website, but for $9 educators can get a great handbook full of tips to get their students started with Zentangles, ideas for tangling on different media, sources of inspiration, and step-by-step instructions in one handy booklet they will refer to again and again.

    I would like to know what kind of paper I should use for my zentangle tiles. I have practiced on Bristol which intended for ink but can not find if you have any suggestions on your site.

      Hi Polly, the 2-part series of TanglePatterns articles by Sandra Strait on choosing a journal for penwork might help you out with some paper ideas. Zentangle tiles are made of a very high quality printmaking paper, Fabriano Tiepolo. I’ve also seen a coil-bound pad designed specifically for the Sakura pens for Manga cartoons, but I haven’t tried it myself. Hope this helps!
