~ Zentangles ! ~
2nd prompt in my online Udemy course to become an art therapist.
I feel like I've drawn these on accident in some of my doodles, just enjoying a pattern in repetition or the feel of my pen on paper. I learned in the video that they actually have a few set rules (created on a 9 cm x 9 cm square tile, original "string" is in pencil, patterns are only in black ink, and tile has an internal border).
Creating a Zentangle may aid a patient in becoming more aware of how they're feeling. It may also allow a person to disconnect from any stress in their current state and relax into the abstract nature of the artwork. I definitely felt that as I made these !
