First Official Zentangle® Class as a CZT!

After completing our CZT training in Whitinsville, Massachusetts my fellow traveler, Jeanne, and I zipped up to Vermont and held our first official Zentangle® class at the Senior Center in Charlotte, Vermont.  It was a great experience and we met a bunch of wonderful budding Zentanglist who created some exceptional pieces.

We used our inspiration from the seminar to guide our process and a great time was had by all! The participants all created wonderful little "jewels" as you can see in the ensembles.

My dear friend Shirley Galliher gave us the opportunity to present this class and it made it so much more special with dear friends there for our intitial foray into the wonderful world of CZT's.

I've been a "shirt-tail" relative since I was 12 years old, thats when I met the family at Clear Lake Camp. It's been an honor to be an extended part of their family. My friend Jeanne and I were able to spend several days with them, days filled with laughter, memories, and lot's of hugs in their lovely little farm house overlooking the Green Mountains!

The artwork hanging in the background is from Shirley's show at the Senior Center. She has artwork from friends and family that range in age from 2 to 97. It's a phenominal and a wonderfully eclectic show. I'm so glad I was able to see it.

There is a different mind-set now that I've completed my Certified Zentangle Training. I have a whole new appreciation and a deeper understanding of this process. The whole experience was a real gift. The training was a once in a lifetime experience and I'm so glad I got to meet so many wonderful people with so much to share.


  1. Congratulations, Danni, on being official now. I'm glad to hear you had a great time at the training and then a chance to implement it already. What fun!
    I've been so busy I haven't done any tangling or blogging for almost a month.

  2. Although Danni and Jeanne were staying with us and I was sort of pre-introduced to Zentangle, I could not have anticipated the fun and feeling of creative accomplishment I gained while in the workshop. This is a gorgeous artform that I will use for self-expression and inner peace. I am, as both of them said I would be, seeing "tangles" everywhere!! Thank you Danni and Jeanne.

  3. Congratulations on becoming a CZT and on your 1st class! I agree with you that the CZT seminar is a wonderful experience and hard to describe until you attend. Wishing you many more classes to come!

  4. Congratulations on your first class! Looks like a great time was had by all.

  5. Congratulations, Danni! I know you're gonna rock the world of Zentangle. I only wish we could have shared our CZT class! :-( On the other hand, maybe in future....*G*
