Dilip Patel Zentangle TEDx Talk

We first met Dilip after he traveled from India to attend a CZT seminar. Before that we had talked and his passion for becoming a CZT was obvious. He was one of the first people to receive a scholarship to attend a CZT seminar. What he did to repay that seminar is worth retelling.

He chose to repay the scholarship by paying it forward in India. He taught Zentangle classes for free. He kept track of how much he would have charged for those classes. Only after that amount equalled the amount of the scholarship, did he begin charging. Brilliant! And a testament to his character and the type of people that are attracted to the Zentangle community.

His Zentangle work with schools, businesses and organizations helping rescued children has been the subject of numerous press articles in India.

Here is his recent TEDx talk:

Congratulations, Dilip!

South Dakota Scholarship

Our first CZT seminar was held in February, 2009. (See some archive newsletters about that event here and here.)  People came from Hong Kong, Belgium, and 13 US states, 

Now, almost exactly 10 years later, CZTs teach the Zentangle Method in 49 of the 50 states in the USA. Every state except . . .

South Dakota!

We want 49 to become 50 . . . so . . . we are offering a full scholarship to attend CZT Seminar #33 to someone from South Dakota. 

If you live in South Dakota and want to become a CZT to teach the Zentangle Method, we invite you to apply for this scholarship. The scholarship application is here.

If you know someone who lives in South Dakota who should know about this, please forward this newsletter.

It will be so much fun to celebrate ten years of CZT seminars by having CZTs in all 50 states.


The special South Dakota scholarship includes all supplies, food, a shared room at the Providence Biltmore where the seminar is held. It does not include transportation to and from the seminar.
