Zentangle is a “Meditative Artform”, which is a relaxing method of creating beautiful abstract art using repetitive structured patterns. It teaches to be mindful and focuses on being present in the moment. Zentangle is about the process of creating which leads to well-being, relaxation, and contentment. Zentangle requires no artistic skills, yet regular practice helps in the development and nurturing of creative abilities, conscious relaxation, and discovering self in the process.

I am loving the Serene experience. The work is refreshing, challenging, innovative and the directions are easy to follow. The lessons are adding to my tangling repertoire and I look forward to each step along the way. I feel that I can begin to grow as an "artist" with Sandhya's guidance.

I enjoy the feedback from the group and enjoy reading the posts, and I would recommend this to anyone interested in Zentangle.

I started with zentangle to fight depression as my only daughter left the nest for higher studies. I came across CZT Sandhya Manne and I felt connected to her. Her way of expressing each tangle and the variety in her projects got me hooked on. When she announced Serene I thought why not. Let's see what this will offer. We are more than one month old now and it has been a wonderful experience.

Every Thursday I wait anxiously for what challenge Sandhya is going to throw our way. When I see her lessons I feel I can achieve the impossible and get motivated on how well can I present it. I like her openness to ideas. The Serene community helps in bringing out the best in all. Hoping to improve and reach the next level in creationism.

Namaste, I'm Sandhya Manne

I have been practicing and teaching Zentangle since 2010. I have taught thousands of enthusiastic participants, from across the world and in India, through private sessions, group classes and online programs.

I also regularly work with corporates like Wipro, Ford, Marico, Texas Instruments, Mahindra Kotak, Fidelity, First Source to name a few introducing  Zentangle and advocating its benefits .

Apart from practicing Zentangle, I am an oil painter and a watercolorist. I like to explore colour and design. Which is evident in all my artworks and workshops. I have been part of many prestigious art shows both in the USA and India. Many of my artworks are now part of private collections in India, Canada, USA and UK.

I am honored to guide you through your Zentangle journey.
