New page on the site: A chronology of Zentangle’s 20th Anniversary Journal Project

Zentangle's 20th Anniversary Journal Project - A ChronologyIn celebration and recognition of Zentangle’s 20th Anniversary, Zentangle HQ has launched a year-long project as described in their newsletter:

We will be journaling our way through the 20th Anniversary celebration. Each month we will fill our pages and inspire you to do the same. Together we will highlight thoughts, ideas, tangles, and tiles – there is so much to celebrate! In honor of our 20th Anniversary, we are offering a special journal bundle for you to journey through this year with us. – Zentangle newsletter

I’ve added a new page on to provide information and links to Zentangle’s newsletters, blog posts and YouTube videos related to this year-long 20th Anniversary Journal Project.

The page will be updated with links as they appear so I suggest bookmarking it and returning frequently to see the latest updates and keep track of the overall 2024 Journal Project chronology.

You can find a link to the new page (Zentangle’s 20th Anniversary Journal Project – A Chronology) on the ZENTANGLES drop-down menu at the top of any page on the site.


More news: Zentangle announces Registration for 2024 CZT seminar is open!

They’ve also changed the format for the CZT seminars, so be sure to check out the Zentangle newsletter for more details and the registration links.

We’ve been known to say that the only requirements to attend CZT training are passion and gratitude. While that sentiment has not changed, the depth of content of our program has. This seminar is about HOW TO TEACH the Zentangle Method and is not a beginner’s course. A person who wishes to attend should be familiar with the Zentangle method and terminology. A regular, personal tangling practice is highly recommended.

You can also find the links for CZT seminars here:

"Absolutely the best Zentangle Book yet! As an accomplished artist I used to think I did not need instruction on this art form. How wrong I was! My tangling improved by leaps and bounds after reading this book. If you think you have Zentangle down then you need this book more than ever!" ~ Kris H
