We always say that the Zentangle Method attracts really awesome people. We have had the pleasure of working with wonderful Certified Zentangle Teachers (CZT) all over the world and we are excited to share these wonderful people with the entire Zentangle Community. Through our series, CZT Family Tree, we will introduce individual CZTs.
Today, we are excited to introduce John Carey
Name: John Carey CZT: 15
Hometown: Midwest City, Oklahoma
Favorite Tangle: Shattuck
Favorite place to tangle: A cruise Ship
How I use the Zentangle Method in my life: I use Zentangle as meditation and I use it as the introductory lesson in my high school Art 1 class.
My favorite story or memory about teaching the Zentangle Method is: I love that moment when you line students work up into the mosaic and they can't pick out their own. They feel accomplished and the buy into the fact that everyone is an artist.
Through my experiences as a CZT, I have learned: You don't have to be perfect.
If I am not tangling, you will find me: Teaching high school art or traveling with my wife and kids.
