Alert!...This is NOT a drawing class! So please keep reading…
This is a fun, relaxing, inexpensive, very portable art form accessible to everyone of all ages.
No artistic skills of any kind needed!
You will use simple, structured marks to create repeating patterns that build on each other to produce complex results that will amaze you. The marks are basic and similar to those used in handwriting – dots, circles, lines, squiggles, etc.
And, like your handwriting, the finished piece will be unique to you.
By concentrating on drawing small blocks of patterns at a time, intuitively selecting patterns as you go, you’ll find yourself going with the flow, relaxing, focusing, and entering an almost meditative state of mind.
You will doodle with several different pens on a variety of papers and take home beautiful completed works of art, templates for new art work, lots of pattern ideas and a handmade journal containing 5 types of paper.
Learn simple techniques using specially designed stencils to create
your own unique mandalas. All supplies provided.
Builds off the skills learned in Simply Complicated Doodling.
Explore more intricate doodle patterns and enhance your designs using stencils, stamps, templates, coloring books, collage elements, etc .
You’ll also learn how to select patterns to complement different shapes and images.
You’ll further unleash your creativity by playing with color! We’ll experiment with watercolor pencils, water-based markers, gel pens, glaze pens, colored pencils, permanent markers, inks, and more on several types of paper.
You will take home beautiful completed works of art, templates and ideas for creating new art work, more pattern ideas, knowledge about several coloring techniques and supplies, and a handmade journal with 4 types of paper.
Please note: completion of the Simply Complicated Doodling – PART 1 class or familiarity with “Zentangle Inspired Art” is highly recommended.
All Doodling classes are currently taught by Julie Durrett
