Art Therapy Journal Lesson 4: Keeping your Zen
Intitally, the idea of completing a self portrait came to mind. I began drawing it out and began to notice that I was stressing myself out over the fact that I can not draw faces. I can't do it. I have tried and it is just not in me. I have learned to accept this flaw and have moved on, but I felt myself getting very stuck on making the perfect self portrait. I started working on the mouth area and I just began doodling where I had made a mistake... enter the creation of the Zentangle.
The Zentangle is a great way to relax and the internet is filled with examples of doodles to make. I will warn you that once you start making them it is seriously hard to stop making them. They are addicting. So join me and show me your Zentangle.
*I do still plan to have a self portrait lesson in a later on down the line.
