Zen People is another creative way for tanglers of all ages to relax and have fun using a few simple tangles in some unique Zentangle®-inspired art! In this class, you will learn how to create 3 different styles of Zen People:
- Tangle Folk: delightful figures created through continuous linework and filled in with Zentangle patterns. They are the brainchild of certified Zentangle teacher (CZT), Billie Lauder, who loves to how this process reveals the personalities hidden within her unique people.
- Zen Kin: whimsical drawings of people, created by CZT Katrina Thiebau, with Zentangle-inspired hair and embellishments.
- Lilah Beans: A sweet, kid-friendly cartoon character created by artist Sandy Steen Bartholomew. The Lilah-cartoon character is easy to draw as you are guided through the process of tangling, making you laugh along the way. Lilah Beans abound!

About the Instructor:
Lee Miller is a retired techie living in South Sacramento with her husband and 2 dogs, Zak and Asha. Lee discovered Zentangle in 2013 by accident while searching for ideas on how to draw for an art project and soon became addicted to the art form. While on sabbatical, she decided to become a Certified Zentangle Teacher. Her favorite part of teaching Zentangle is the interaction between the students and watching those that came into the class stating they do not know how to draw become confident.
