Join instructor Lee Miller in this fun class for beginning artists and those new to Zentangle.
First, you will learn the philosophy behind, and method of, creating Zentangle art. Put pen to paper and learn to tangle beautiful patterns on square paper tiles with fine tip pens, pencils and blending tortillions to shade your work.
This fun class is beginner-friendly and you can use materials that you have around the house or bought from the store for cheap.
What is Zentangle?
Zentangle is a form of artistic meditation through a very specific method of deliberate intention that produces non-objective drawings composed of patterns (tangles) that can be viewed from all four sides.
Zentangle is about the process, not the outcome. The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.
You’ll need to purchase or gather the following items prior to class:
- #2 pencil
- fine point black sharpie (or pen)
- a blending stub
- practice sheet – download & print here
Paper Recommendation: It’s suggested that you use medium-weight art paper, like mixed media paper, or 20lb printer paper cut into 4″X 4″ squares. You can also purchase pre-cut artist tiles from Amazon, Blick or Jerry’s Artarama. Blending stubs help you blend/ smooth out pencil shading and really help create stunning visual effects. You can buy yours at Amazon, Blick or Jerry’s Artarama.

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.
