The Art of Doodling

This hands on workshop is for novices and experienced artists.

We will mess about, dabble and fiddle to our heart’s content.

Doodling is spontaneous uncensored drawing. Doodling helps us process our emotions, alleviate stress and develop new possibilities for creative expression.

We will explore both the process and the product of our art practice sharing insights, joys and concerns.

“The Art of Doodling” is the beginning of a series of workshops that will encompass abstract and minimally representational drawing. Themes include imaginary beasts and animals, fantasy figures, graphic stories and sacred symbols. You are invited to come to one, some or all of the workshops as the spirit moves you.

Suggested Materials:

  • 6 sheets or 8×12 paper or larger
  • ruler
  • colored pencils
  • fine tipped magic markers and/or fine tipped colored pens.

Recommendation for affordable high quality pens: Chameleon Fineliner Pen Sets on Amazon Smile
