Also known as doodling or zentangle, this is an artistic technique that can be used to decorate backgrounds or different areas of an artwork, enriching it with different purely ornamental motifs.
The method is easy to learn, relaxing, and a great way to create abstract images by repeatedly drawing patterns. It is also considered a form of meditation as it helps to increase the concentration through structured drawing. As this practice is also known for its results in increasing artistic satisfaction and well-being anyone can do it! You don't need previous drawing experience to participate in this workshop.
