Mindful Doodling

February 20@5:30pm-8:00pm

Join us as local illustrator Trisha Guarasci shares her insights and experience with a unique style of imaginative drawing that is both extremely fun and relaxing. Mindful Doodling uses a variety of marking making strategies to create decorative patterns and designs that can be combined into free flowing artworks. These open ended illustrations incorporate a great deal of creative problem solving as the drawings spontaneously spread across the page, often in unpredictable ways.

This type of drawing can be very liberating since it is not concerned with realistic details or accurate representations. The focus is instead on the imaginative use of lines, shapes, and patterns forming creative, eye-catching compositions.

• No previous art making skills are required, just a love for art and an eagerness to learn and create!

• Students will learn several decorative “step outs.” These are repetitive patterns or motifs that can be “built” one step at a time by combining a series of lines and shapes in specific ways.

• Students will learn about planning a free flowing composition using different “string” strategies. This involves dividing the page in unique ways to create multiple areas for different patterns and designs.

• Students will gain experience working with a number of different illustration pens.

• Multiple print and electronic resources will be shared for continuing to build your knowledge base on this unique and popular drawing style.
