One of our (local) fabulous CZTs stopped by yesterday morning. She is working with teachers to use Zentangle to help students relax and focus before taking tests.
One of the many profound stories she relayed was that students she had worked with were comforted merely knowing they had Zentangle to fall back on, to "have in their back pocket" when things went awry.
We've heard many stories about how comforting creating a Zentangle tile can be. For these students, just knowing it was there was a comfort, too.
