Welcome to Laughing Orchid Studio . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .the place to learn Zentangle®

 I am one of nine certified zentangle teachers in Alberta, three in Calgary who have been trained I teaching zentangle by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts, who coined the word and developed this patterned drawing as an art form.    I have been teaching zentangle classses in the Calgary area since 2012.  It is a real pleasure to see people express surprise, affirmation and satisfaction at their results after the 2 hour class.

Interested? Sign up for a beginner class and try it out.

Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.   Zentangle was created by Rick and Maria for you to enjoy.   Their website can be found at zentangle.com

     Almost anyone can create beautiful images. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being. The Zentangle method is enjoyed all over the world across a wide range of skills, interests and ages.
    Rick and Maria started zentangle and believe that life is an art form and that their Zentangle method is an elegant metaphor for deliberate artistry in life.
I teach classes to those who would like to learn this art form or extend their knowledge and skills in the art of zentangle.     Email me at sgchatelain@gmail.com with questions or to register for a class.   I also carry a range of supplies to support your tangling adventure. Please contact me if you are interested in more supplies.
I run a monthly meetup for anyone interested in zentangle as an art form. Check it out or sign up  for our growing group.

  1. Super class Sandra! Thank you so much.

  2. Great website but can’t find your location anywhere.

  3. Hello from a pentangle fan, I sent an email yesterday and now it has disappeared..I am interested in joining this group and love pen and ink drawing. Do you have classes during the day, I am retired and not crazy about night time driving. I live near the deer foot off centre..Thank you.

  4. Hi Laureen,
    I wrote you back yesterday. You had left the message on my about me page.
    The google meetup link is here: http://www.meetup.com/Calgary-Zentangle-Meetup/ Please visit the page and you need to join it yourself, I cannot add people. you will then see all the meetups with the dates and times. We have a meet for Dec 1. I’ll see you on the meet up group page soon then,

  5. Thank you for a wonderful class on friday My granddaughter and I really enjoyed learning this art. I forgot to buy more paper and have you got an instruction book and dvd that I could buy.

    • Hi Brenda, I am glad you both enjoyed the class. Buying the zentangle kit is the best way to have the ‘supplies’ to keep you going. It has the DVD, tiles, extra pens and pencils. I have some here if you like, we can arrange something next time you are in the city.
      Hope your whole day class went well😊

  6. Where are you located in Calgary

    • Hi Dolores, I teach the classes at my home in NW Calgary. I have a beginner class tomorrow evening if you’d like to attend. Email me at sgchatelain@gmail.com The conference is at the scouts hall in Bowness. Beautiful new building with lots of natural light. Hope you can come.
