Dimensional Doodling with Sarah Hanson
Wednesdays 10 am to 12 pm
Meditative doodling is a relaxing, easy to learn and fun drawing style that combines structured patterns and spontaneous mark making to create fun
designs and whimsical drawings. This class combines meditative doodling with paper craft. The doodle drawings created will be made into dimensional objects by folding, cutting and pasting. Drawings are transformed into functional or decorative objects.
Materials needed include multiple sheets of drawing paper, both thick and thin paper, black marker or felt-tipped pen, pencil, glue stick, scissors.
Beginner to Advanced Artists welcome!
Meditative Doodling allows for drawing without judgement.
In every class, we focus to settle the body, calm the mind and let creativity flow through guided meditation to create a stream of conscious drawing.
When your mind is relaxed, it is able to focus and be at its most creative.
In all cultures, symbolism and graphic representations communicate ideas, beliefs and share common lore and the rich history of experiences.
Over the next several weeks, this class will also explore patterns and symbols from across time and around the globe.
