Due to the success of my free zentangle-inspired hand activity E-Book which has been downloaded by hundreds of visitors to this website, I have decided to run a fun competition so that we can see the designs that you, your children or students have created.
If you have not seen or downloaded the free pdf E-Book yet, please click on the picture of the book to get yourself a copy now. There are step-by-step instructions in the book for how to tackle this fun art activity.
If you’ve never heard of zentangle art, true zentangles are small square tiles done with repeated patterns which do not represent anything and can be viewed from any angle.
The Zentangle® art form and method was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas and is copyrighted. Zentangle® is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc.
The drawing of the hand is not a true zentangle but rather a zentangle-inspired artwork as it represents a hand.
Produce a zentangle-inspired drawing of your hand including part of your arm, if you wish, onto paper using any of the following art materials: black pens, gel pens, felt pens, graphite pencils, pen and ink, coloured pencils, pastels
- Adults ages 18 and over
- Children ages 10 – 17
- Children ages 5 – 9
All children and amateur creative adults worldwide who are not professional artists, designers or illustrators.
You must be a subscriber of the Engaged in Art Newsletter to enter yourself or your kids|students artwork in the competition. By dowloading the Zentangle-inspired Hand E-Book you will become a subscriber.

This is my collection of inspiring tangle patterns I have discovered on the Internet. They are not my patterns but you may find this board helpful. Click the picture to visit on Pinterest or open a free Pinterest account. You will love it.
