Diva Dance Zentangle | How To Draw Zentangles
There are not a lot of tangles with a more unique name than Dive Dance.
This zentangle pattern is easy to draw and looks like a beautiful flower.
Let’s take a look at how to draw Diva Dance.
Normally, Diva Dance starts with a dot or a filled circle.
But you could start with any basic shape.
For example, you could start with a heart in the center for a cute version of Diva Dance as well.
Draw a circle around your dot.
Draw several small leaves around the circle.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 by first drawing a line around the figure, and draw several petals attached to the line.
Keep adding more and more layers until you are happy with the size of your pattern.
For a more organic look, try to change up the number of petals you draw on each layer.
And to finish off your zentangle, you can draw several Diva Dance tangles or add one of the many other zentangle patterns.

What do you need for drawing zentangles?
The best thing about zentangle art is that you don’t need much to get started.
The only supplies you need to start drawing your first zentangle are:
- A pen with black ink: a pen with a fine-tip will make it easier to draw more complicated and detailed patterns. The Sakura Pigma Micron fineliner works great for this.
- Paper: any paper will do when starting out. But if you want to store your zentangles or put them on display, you might want to invest in better quality paper such as these bristol artist tiles.
- Pencil: pencils are often used to sketch complicated patterns before inking them. Make sure to use a sharp pencil or a mechanical pencil.
How to draw zentangles
Drawing a zentangle is super easy and only requires three simple steps.
Step 1: Draw a square
Start by drawing the outer edges of your zentangle.
This can really be any shape you want.
But if this is your first zentangle, I recommend you stick to a simple square or rectangle.
Step 2: Divide the square in 4
Draw two lines to divide your square in 4 sections.
You can draw the two diagonals or draw two curved lines like I did below.
As you become more experienced, you might want to divide your zentangle in more sections.
Step 3: Fill each section with a pattern
Fill in each of the sections with a different pattern.
You can come up with your own patterns, or try one of the patterns from the list below.
