CZT certification

I'm finally home after a wonderful week in Boston. I went for the certification class with Rick and Maria and was able to spend a few days with my sister too. The week was exhilarating, tiring, relaxing, (yes, both) and very educational. The other students were inspiring and encouraging. We came from all over the US, Canada and even the Netherlands and Bermuda. We oohed and aaahed over each other's work.

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.


  1. Congratulations Sue on becoming a CZT, I am oohing and aaahing just reading about it!

  2. Congratulations on your certification.
    I can see it was a wonderful experience.
    I wish you the best of luck teaching people this great ART method !
    I once hope to be able to go to the US for it as well.

  3. Congratulations Sue! Have a wonderful time being a CZT!
