Zentangle Apprentice™ brings the Zentangle Method and experience to our youngest generation.
Children across the globe are creating amazing pieces of art using the Zentangle Method. What is fascinating about Zentangle is that it stretches across cultures, religions, media and ages without having to alter the content of the method. The Zentangle Method itself changes very little when you're teaching children versus adults. We thought it would be fun to create some lessons and materials for children (of all ages) to create with the Zentangle Method.
During these unprecedented times, we at Zentangle HQ are focusing on creating more content for our Zentangle community.
Our dear friend Bijou noted that schools are not in session and families now have more time together at home. Bijou suggested that we create some video content for our younger tanglers.
"What a brilliant idea", we enthusiastically agreed. And so we rallied our "in-house" Zentangle Apprentices to help us in the studio.
Bijou wrote this note and requested that we send it to all of the Zentangle Apprentices across the world:
Dear Zentangle Apprentice,
We hope you are finding creative ways to use your time during these days we spend at home. There is so much opportunity for discovery and learning in moments like this.
We thought that maybe you would enjoy digging into the Zentangle Method with us. Molly has invited her friends Indy and Mazzy to help her create this very special video just for you. Whether you are brand new to the Zentangle Method or have done lots of tangles before, this video is for all. Even though we have created it with kids in mind, we think that friends of all ages might enjoy to tangle along as well.
Thank you for joining us and happy tangling,
Feel free to share this video with any of the tanglers in your life (children or adults) that you think might enjoy tangling along.
Share your artwork on the Zentangle Mosaic App or other social media sites with the hashtag #ZentangleApprentice1

Thanks for your answere in advance.
Take care – Gerd
I have tangled with kids from 8 to 10 years old in the school, where I‘ m working. My experiences are ,that kids draw from „ the bottom of their hearts „ and , the ones, which are unable to concentrate during the normal lessons make the most lovely tangles. Every time I see this, I‘m overwhelmed and full of joy for them and I think, it would be good for all kids to experience this fun , beauty and joy.
Thank you for sharing with us this video .
Have a good time, Martina

So enjoyed this and would love to share on Facebook. Is that possible? And yes, I followed along and lost myself for a while even. So nice to see the girls helping to teach the basics. They were great!
