ZENTANGLE® STUDENTS and tangle club members


"I'm so glad to have discovered Zentangle. We adults are so concerned with doing things 'right'. I love that Zentangle reconnects me with the uninhibited joy I felt as a child while creating art. And Nancy is such a kind and encouraging teacher. Thanks again!"

"It was fun today and so amazingly relaxing! You are an inspiring teacher who encourages the students to fly with their new skills and your enthusiasm is contagious. The peace of mind that comes with the art is beyond anything I would have imagined.
Thank you from a former beginner who is now a better beginner."


"Thank you for helping to free my inner artist!"


"Thanks for your skillful presentation -- just right for the group."


"I love Zentangle, because it allows me to draw, using simple, repetitive designs to create something beautiful, while producing a calm and relaxed inner state."


"You don't know how much I needed exactly what you provided in class yesterday.      I am trying very hard to simplify my life, and your words resonated with other Zen teachings I've been getting lately.  Mindful.  Aware.  Present.  These are concepts I am working to embrace.  I walked away from class yesterday feeling accomplished and peaceful.  I kept thinking, 'I did art and it wasn't awful!'. Thank you for taking the time to teach us."


"Thank you. Designing or creating my own work/art without worry of errors or perfection allowed for better creativity!"


"Zentangling is so much fun.  Nancy is so patient and calm.  I really enjoyed her class."


"Thank you, Nancy, for a wonderful class. I'm super excited to have this as a relaxing and very portable hobby."


"Thank you Nancy. I had such a good time! I keep seeing Zentangle patterns all over the place now! "

"I love Zentangle and having the opportunity to Zentangle with Nancy in the middle of my work day was fabulous!  What a great way to spend the lunch hour."

"Awesome! I am definitely going to continue doing this on my own time."


"Had a great time tonight in class! Thanks as always."


"Engaging, relaxing and helpful for me personally and professionally!"


"After a long, stressful day at work, I find the best way to relax is to put on some classical music, take a few deep breaths, and draw some Zentangle patterns. After doing that for a few minutes, I find I have renewed energy for the evening and am ready to take on any tasks that I still need to accomplish."

"I love Zentangle because when I sit down to draw I feel like I can let the creativity flow out through my pen. I love creating my own patterns and I have some patterns that I love using over and over again. I enjoy feeling the sense of calm and well being that comes over me as I become consumed with the drawing. I love letting my pictures unfold and evolve. Zentangle is an escape from the stresses of our daily routines."


"I love Zentangle, because it allows me to draw, using simple, repetitive designs to create something beautiful, while producing a calm and relaxed inner state."

"I love Zentangle because it's portable, easily done without prior drawing experience, and can be enjoyed with my 8-year-old granddaughter!"

"Zentangle has allowed me to see my creative side and know I can create anything." 

"Zentangle is a fun way for non-artists to be able to connect with that creative part and draw!!!   It is something that can be done by young and old.....and everyone in between."

"I love Zentangle as it allows me to embrace an entire new aspect of my creative self. Who knew that having the simple ability to draw a dot, a line, c, s and o could be transformed into such fine art. Plus, when you get into it, you truly can reach zen."
