Fine Motor Skills

We always knew that Zentangle was great for developing fine motor skills. Jella Verelst, CZT in Belgium, reinforces that view with this email:
I challenged my students to draw a ‘first Zentangle’ again after 9 months. (same string, same tangles) They could see with their own eyes how Zentangle improves fine motor skills.



Thank you for sending that Jella.

What a great idea, will have to go back and do a few of my own again. I definitely see an improvement overall, but it will be fun to compare then, to now with the same string and tangle patterns.

Very impressive! I should do the same thing and see how the work progresses!

I recently discovered zentangles as I was recovering from meningitis. I had lost my balance and my small motor skills. How scary for an artist. Thank you so much for your generousity and to all those zentanglers who share so freely. I have almost recovered my small motor skills and discovered a new artistic outlet. I'm loving it! Thank you.

Great idea and one that I have personally practiced since I discovered Zentangle earlier this year. There is something about repeating those early lessons that completes the experience (at least for me). ~Donna Hornsby, CZT (Class #3)
