I started Zentangling in 2018 when I was going through adjuvant chemotherapy to treat my brain tumor. The Zentangle method gave me a pleasant distraction at a time when I could do little else. I learned new Zentangle patterns by watching videos on YouTube and created my own channel to log my progress.

It’s been a couple of years now, but I am still Zentangling and enjoying making videos to share with others. If you’re a Zentangle fan, or if you just want to learn more, these are my video suggestions for getting started.

One Zentangle a Day Series

When I first started learning how to Zentangle, I completed Beckah Krahula’s book, One Zentangle a Day: A 6-Week Course in Creative Drawing for Relaxation, Inspiration, and Fun. I recorded my progress on YouTube, and these were some of the earliest Zentangle videos I completed.

Zentangle Patterns for every letter of the alphabet

In my continuing quest to learn even more Zentangle patterns, I came across the website tanglepatterns.com. It’s a great resource with hundreds of tangles from the official Zentanglers at HQ as well as certified Zentangle teachers (CZTs) and Zentangle enthusiasts. I completed another series of videos selecting one pattern from the always-growing list of patterns for each letter of the English alphabet.
