The location of the seminar was an old mansion that was also a convent before becoming the Catholic retreat center it is today. You can see the woodwork that made it a magnificent mansion. Upstairs the rooms have been converted into sleeping quarters.The rooms are not exactly 5 star accommodations but it was so nice to roll out of bed and walk down the stairs for the classes and meals.
In addition, the location made it possible for us to see the home of Rick and Maria, Zentangle central! Their home is amazing! Zentangles are everywhere. There are zentangles drawn on walls and even floors! Tiles are placed wherever they will fit. And upstairs we saw Maria's desk. It's a wonderful area that is filled with light during the day and even at night it seemed almost magical.
