After the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, the New Year gives us an opportunity to pause, reflect, and then look forward. We are excited for this coming year and all that 2023 has to offer!

As we look forward, we are thrilled to be going back to Newport, Rhode Island this April for CZT Seminar #40.

There is something positively magical that happens when tanglers gather together. The energy, camaraderie, and creativity flowing through the room is something we are all looking forward to experience again. You can read more about gathering with the Zentangle Community in this blog post. After the past few years, we cherish these moments to gather in person more than ever. We hope that you will join us!
April 4-7, 2023
Newport, Rhode Island
Join us at the Newport Harbor Island Resort in historic Newport, Rhode Island, USA. This 4-day teacher training program is taught by the founders of the Zentangle Method, Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. It will provide a comprehensive understanding of the philosophies behind the Zentangle Method of drawing. Students will leave with all the knowledge they need to teach the Zentangle Method and the tools needed to convey the full Zentangle experience to others. CZTs enjoy continued support and inspiration from Zentangle Inc. and through our global CZT network.
What do CZTs have to say about seminar and being a Certified Zentangle Teacher?
The attention to details, the first class quality and extreme generosity, the beautiful way the philosophy was explained – the love between your family and staff. Thank you.. sincerely

The positivity of the Zentangle method is what attracted and compelled me to become a CZT. YES, everyone can be an artist. But I wasn’t expecting the Zentangle community to be so friendly, generous and generally wonderful! Frankly, it’s been one of the best steps I’ve ever taken.

Everyone at Zentangle HQ is excited to meet you! We are here to make your experience as smooth as possible. If you have any questions about our CZT Seminars and becoming a CZT, please reach out to Martha Huggins at
