If You Give a Friend a Pen...

If You Give a Friend a Pen...

If you give a friend a pen… they will be inspired to draw. If they are inspired to draw… they will need to know where to begin. You can tell your friend about the Zentangle Method, and they will be intrigued that anyone can learn how. If they want to learn to tangle… they will need someone to teach them how! If they need someone to teach them how… perhaps that could be you! If you are going to teach them to tangle … you are going to feel happy and fulfilled to be such a good friend. And if that person learns to tangle … chances are, they will realize they are an Artist … just like you.


Tis the season to give pens … you never know what it might lead to.


Inspired by the very lovely children’s book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, by Laura Numeroff and illustrated by Felicia Bond

  • Thanks Julie! You gave me an idea for my upcoming birthday. Everyone wants to give me a gift but instead, I’ll be giving them a pen and see what happens!

  • What a beautiful thought and written in few words. That is the exact feeling we give birth when we share the zentangle art …

  • Julie, thank you for this! What a sweet reminder of the magic of the Zentangle Method! Just imagine that by giving someone a pen, we each have the ability to not only help that person learn how to draw and become an artist, we help ourself feel joy and happiness just by sharing this wonderful art form.
