The Art of Doodling: Dancing with Color

These hands-on workshops are designed for both novices and experienced artists.

In April, May and June we will play with color. We will learn a little about the science of color, about color interactions and layering. We will also explore the psychology and symbolism of color. Color holds power. Color impacts our moods, emotions, and behaviors. It can also be a source of important information about our world.

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

The workshops will not just be about making art but about the different ways we experience art and how it affects us. We will integrate movement, art, and playful sharing into our art making experience and explore both the process and the product of our art practice sharing insights, joys and concerns.

“The Art of Doodling” is a series of workshops that will encompass abstract and minimally representational drawing. Themes include radiating designs, symmetrical and asymmetrical patterns, imaginary beasts, 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.
