Join instructor Lee Miller in this relaxing class for beginning artists and those new to Zentangle. Students 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 the materials fee includes take-home supplies, so you can continue practicing at home.

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.

Supplies: BYO or Pick Up a Kit!

Buy our class supply kit for $5 and pick it up from the Sierra 2 Center ahead of class. Kits can be picked up in the parking lot breezeway, a week or so prior to class (TBA). Check out your kit by signing off your name on our check out form.

You can also source your own supplies. You’ll need:

  • paper
  • #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 AmazonBlick 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 AmazonBlick or Jerry’s Artarama.

Praise for Lee’s Zoom Classes:

“It was really fun.  I couldn’t believe how fast 3 hours flew by. Lee is a great teacher!” – Jane K.

“I enjoyed the class and think the Zoom worked really well.” – Margaret J.

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.
