Does Zentangle Vary from Doodling?

Doodling is different than Zentangle in some ways;

 Doodling:
1. No goal in mind
2. Aimless
 3. Unfocused
4. Used as a distraction
5. Done while doing something else
6. Getting lost in a daydream
7. Unstructured

Zentangle:
1. Mindful
2. Done with thought
3. Focused
4. Purposeful
5. Art making
6. Attention in the moment

7. Helpful activity

8.  Involves ritual

Just something to consider…

Join me on Saturday, April 27, 2013, for two sessions in Zentangle (beginning and more advanced).  9:30AM-12:30PM for Zentangle 1 for an introduction to this meditative, enjoyable drawing process.  Class fee is $35.00 + $8.00 for supplies.
