Current CZTs (Virtual)

November 8, 2020 - November 11, 2020


Become a Certified Zentangle Teacher®!

We invite Zentangle enthusiasts from near and far to join us during our first online, virtual CZT training seminar. Realizing that this year travel may be difficult for any number of reasons, we feel it is our responsibility to offer you the option of a virtual seminar experience. We look forward to welcoming you…right from the comfort of your own home!

This four-day Zentangle Teacher Certification program will be taught by the founders of the Zentangle® Method, Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, along with Molly Hollibaugh and Martha Huggins. This seminar, taught in ENGLISH, is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the philosophies behind the Zentangle Method of drawing. You will finish with all the knowledge you need to teach the Zentangle Method and the tools needed to convey the full Zentangle experience to your students. As a CZT, you will enjoy continued support and inspiration from Zentangle Inc. and from our world-wide CZT network.

This live event will follow roughly the same seminar schedule timeline as our in-person CZT seminars, culminating in a celebratory completion and certification. Join us opening night via Zoom webinar, beginning Sunday November 8 at 4:00pm EST.[time zone calculator] Many details will follow to help you get ready for this seminar.

Details and FAQs

Here are two lists of what we can and can’t do:

We can’t:

  • Guarantee you’ll make money . . . even colleges and universities will not guarantee that
  • Teach you how to run a business or handle your taxes . . . it’s beyond the scope of our seminar
  • Assign territories . . . people move and there are so many applications for teaching the Zentangle Method within any one area: Schools, businesses, clubs, health care, etc.
  • Promise that a non-CZT won’t offer competing classes . . . While we vigorously pursue trademark and copyright infringement, we can only act within established legal frameworks and within our financial and time resources. We prefer to emphasize education of the marketplace and to provide students with the very best Zentangle experience possible. This is paying great benefits as people and organizations increasingly value the instructions and classes taught by a CZT over people who are not trained by us. Once you are a CZT- we encourage you to use that title to set yourself apart.

We can:

  • Provide you with tools and resources to create a thriving Zentangle business. More and more people are teaching Zentangle workshops as an important source of income.
  • Provide a wonderful experience at seminar. Even though this is our first virtual hybrid seminar, we expect it will convey our familiar camaraderie and immersion in an atmosphere of Zentangle creativity, inspiration and friendship.
  • Provide an ongoing system of support through newsletters, our CZT Resource center, and through our invitation-only chat forum facilitating a network with each other.
  • Provide a listing and an editable page on our website to all CZTs in good standing.
  • Offer most of our Zentangle products to you at wholesale prices.
  • Make every effort to make all of our strategic decisions around how it will support and impact our CZTs.
  • Provide advance notice and availability of new products to CZTs.
  • Provide a CZT only newsletter.
  • Invite you to join us in this wonderful exciting adventure. While no one can promise it, we continually hear wonderful stories of gratitude from people who have found a CZT through our website and it has changed (or saved) their lives. The gratitude that you can experience in teaching the Zentangle method has become a major focus in many CZTs’ lives . . . it is a source of joy, focus and income.
