19 Jul Artful Doodles – A Creative Doodle Workshop
What is doodling?
The Many Benefits of Doodling
Doodling is healing and helps you to process your emotions and release the stress of life.
Doodling opens the door to your creativity. Some of the greatest and most creative minds in history were doodlers including Einstein, Da Vinci, and many past presidents.
Doodling keeps you in the present moment. It slows you down and it becomes a form of mindfulness meditation. With doodling, you can access the flow state, which is a healing state where all your senses are being engaged and you lose track of time and leave all your worries behind.
Doodling helps you practice drawing and mark making. This can give you ideas to use in more advanced works of art. Doodling allows you to take risks and play with color and pattern in unexpected ways.
Learn to doodle with watercolor, markers, paint and ink pens, and acrylic paints. This course has 7 fun, doodlicious projects that will set your imagination free!
