Zentangling: Art or mere Doodling?
This form of structured, meditative drawing has become a worldwide phenomenon and adult colouring books are popping up in households around the world. I, for one, am an avid "tangler". It’s relaxing and incredibly gratifying. Despite the many benefits that have been psychologically proven, can zentangling be considered ‘art’ or is it simply glorified doodling? I’m a mature university student of Creative Writing and English and Literature and I’ve just chosen to add a Visual Arts minor to my degree because I can’t breathe without creativity. Does this passion for zentangling transcend into the art realm? Do you suppose this practice can be taken seriously when presented as art?
