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.

In June 2019, I became a Certified Zentangle Teacher. It was a wonderful experience and when I returned home, I had to share this beautiful method with my community in Mexico. I won a contest to teach the Casa de Cultura (House of Culture) in my home town of Santiago Nuevo Leon in Mexico. I started with this amazing experience and they had a chance to show all of the artwork that we created in three months and then suddenly the world changed in 2020.
When the pandemic began, I was worried about all of the people around me with high levels of stress and anxiety, so I decided to start an afternoon Zentangle class on Instagram. I did not really no how to go about doing this, but as you know in Zentangle, there are "no mistakes." Now, I have a wonderful world-wide community who joins me every day at 5 o'clock. Every day is a new message with gratitude and appreciation for the Zentangle time we have together. I have now taught over 200 free sessions on Instagram. I am so proud to be a part of this amazing and unique family.
My favorite part about teaching the Zentangle Method is: I am a visual artist, so for me almost everything in my memory has something visual. Every person for me is an image with movement, the face that they have when they arrive to the class is different than the one that they have when they leave. I see the beautiful spark of happiness, self-esteem and empowerment. It is such a wonderful feeling as a teacher.
Through my experiences as a CZT, I have learned: that everybody should have this art therapy every day and switch to the creative and dynamic mind.
