Welcome to Zen & Zin!

I’m Sarah Uram – I’m an artist and a Certified Zentangle Teacher trained by the founders of Zentangle®, Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. I also dabble in watercolors, abstract pattern art, and mandala work. 

I was inspired to create Zen & Zin as a way to bring my favorite things together—friends, drinks, and Zentangle. While wine was the initial muse in my “Tangle.Sip.Repeat” motto, it applies to tea, coffee, beer, water, or even a simple breath of air! I aim to create an atmosphere where we can relax and enjoy ourselves while learning Zentangle.

Zendalas and Mandalas – October 1-15, Thursdays from 6-8pm CDT – sign up by Wednesday, September 30th to join!

Explore the world of circles and patterns as we dive into creating Zendalas (a Zentangle Method-inspired approach) and Mandalas (a geometric approach used in Hindu, Buddhism, and other religions). Mandalas are an ancient form of geometry and art that reflect the self. The process of making a mandala is meditative and reflective. Take your meditative art to the next level! We’ll explore loose, hand-drawn designs as well as use simple tools (such as a compass and straight-edge ruler) to create intricate designs. We’ll also explore how to use these as meditative anchors as well. No experience needed! Each week will include instructions to creating a mandala, as well as background and historical information, and a meditative prompt. Expect to finish the mandala on your own, as the intricate designs may need more time than class allows.
