GEMS International School, Dubai

I am Jeeya Mahajan, currently in year 8 at GEMS International School, Dubai.  I have always aspired to be a designer and to serve the community through the medium of art, being my passion.  My experience of working with self, the students of determination, friends and family have led me to explore the field of Zen tangles.  This has not only helped me gain my confidence but has helped me understand and transform my mistakes into opportunities by shaping my imaginative and thinking skills.  This has given me a broad perspective allowing me to let go of my fear of expectations by tangling , eventually leaving to pursue my own ambitions in the field of art and creativity.

Zentangle is a medium for encouraging a creative, reflective activity for our students’ development. Focus, creativity, relaxation, ceremony, empowerment, abstraction, fun and discovery are just a few of the many benefits of this elegant activity. It has been observed and reflected that students struggling in various subjects and areas of life, after tangling are more productive than those not. Seeing patterns in the world around us helps us not only to understand but create something new by combining patterns pleasing to the brain, thus confidence in being a creative person is restored and transfers to other forms and ways to success. The strategies, tools and techniques that are learnt when tangling are those you need to empower and motivate when attempting new things. Like all other elements of the child’s development; Zentangle will work best if it is supported and understood by parents, teachers, families and the entire world community.
