This is an art form that can be done by almost anyone! If you can draw a line, a dot, a circle and a curved line then you can create zentangle art! No need to worry if your lines aren’t straight or your circles aren’t perfect. There is no up or down, no right or wrong way. People who have said that they “are no good at art” are often amazed with the beautiful images they create.
