|Certified Zentangle Teacher Seminar Registration|
for February 21-24, 2012
Registration is now open for our
February 21-24, 2012, Certified Zentangle Teacher seminar at Hotel Providence in Providence, RI, USA.
As desire to learn the Zentangle method increases, so does the demand for Certified Zentangle Teachers (CZTs). We've always known from email feedback how valuable a Zentangle class with a CZT is (see below). And now our CZT program is receiving larger recognition. For instance:
Here are a few reasons why you might come to a CZT seminar:
- Create a business teaching the Zentangle method.
- Bask in the company of like-minded people (existing CZTs often re-attend!).
- Learn more about something you love.
- Buy Zentangle products at wholesale.
- Understand more about Zentangle by meeting with and learning from its founders.
Please take a few moments to look through the information in this newsletter and its links. If you have questions, please send us an email
And please register promptly. Previous seminars have filled quickly.
Day One, Tuesday
After arriving and settling in at Hotel Providence, we share dinner . . .
. . . and then enjoy a get together in the lobby and ballroom. Zentangle art is on display and we get to meet and chat informally.
Days Two and Three, Wednesday and Thursday
These are full days of instruction and creativity.
In the evenings there are optional activities and wonderful opportunities for conversations, making friends and sharing Zentangle creations.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided as are coffee, tea and snacks during morning and afternoon breaks.
Day Four, Friday
After breakfast we have an informal Q&A until noon. We'll answer questions on anything from the business of Zentangle to exploring tangles in more depth.
A store is open throughout the seminar with Zentangle supplies and gifts. During the seminar all items are available at CZT prices.
After you register, we'll send you your confirmation and provide access to more information.

Here are some comments about and from our CZTs:
Dear Rick and Maria,
We were so pleased to meet one of your CZTs yesterday.
Our son and family were here visiting from Texas and I had arranged (through your online teacher list) for Susan Smith of Andover to come to the house for a group class.
She was really excellent and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderful Zentangle experience.
I attended the first of what i'm hoping will be many Zentangle workshops here in Hawai'i.
Lois [Stokes, CZT] did an outstanding job!! I've visited your website many times and love your videos on youtube.
Not only is Zentangle fun to do, it has come into my life at just the right time.... thank you, thank you.
Keep up the good work and enjoy....
[ . . . ] Thanks, Rick. And deep gratitude to you and Maria for not only coordinating the beginning of Zentangles, but nurturing it along so lovingly, with the help of a terrific crew!
Last week a woman called me and she was crying so hard, she could hardly say hello. She told me she was so depressed, her Dr. had given up on her. I sent her a packet with information about all kinds of things, including Zentangles. She came to last Saturday's Zentangle Class, and attended a support group tonight. She had been just about ready to give up on herself. There are so many stories like this, and I am so grateful to be able to reach out to all kinds of people, in all kinds of situations -- happy and sad -- and introduce them to all the possibilities of Zentangle.
Peace, love, and Zentangles!
Carol Bailey Floyd, CZT

Hotel Providence is a private 4-star hotel in the heart of Providence. They love having us there and give us good rates. Still, they are more expensive than the retreat center we previously used, which is now closed.
Everyone who attends agrees that the value received far outweighs the cost. We invite you to join us and become part of this wonderful community.
Shortly after you register, we will send you all the info you need for Seminar.
|CZT Seminar Schedule for 2012|
We have confirmed our dates for Certified Zentangle Teacher training seminars for 2012. We are doing three and all will be held at the Hotel Providence. Seminars begin on Tuesday and end on Friday.
- February 21 - 24 (Open for registration)
- August 14 - 17
- September 25 - 28
We will open registrations for August and September when we're settled into our new registration routine.
We've had to raise our prices to accommodate our increased costs with our new facility. We're not sure yet what our costs will be in August and September but we are told by the hotel that they will be a bit more than February.
|Our Holiday Tradition|
It's been our holiday tradition for several years now to tie a bow and add a card to your Zentangle Kit during this end of year gift giving season. All you have to do is ask for it.
We'll do this for orders over $30. You'll get a nice bow and Maria will hand letter
a beautiful card. Just tell us the names you want for the "to" and the "from", but please, no notes, just names.
You can type the info in the "Comments" section as you check out online, or tell us when you call in your order.
We are so grateful to be able to share this wonderful adventure with you!
We look forward to making new friends in February!
Rick and Maria
