About This Class

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
― Thomas Merton

It all begins with a doodle. Sketchbook doodles are the starting point for most of my creative experiments; be it a mixed media painting, hand lettered art, or a watercolored bouquet.

The beauty of the sketchbook is its simplicity which makes it so accessible and doable. Everyone can do this. You can explore, experiment, practice messing up, and allow your creativity to explode. You can take just a few minutes to feed your creative soul without dedicating hours on end, or creating a huge mess. 

Whether you are a seasoned doodler, or you're buying your first sketchbook, this foundational class is for you.  With a simple pen and sketchbook in hand, we will be doodling lines, shapes, textures, and patterns, and finding inspiration in the most unexpected places.

As one idea always leads to another, you will be surprised to see your artistic style emerge and grow as you follow your creative intuition, from simple lines, to more detailed patterns. The possibilities are limitless.

But the best part? It's just fun. That's really why I do it. And that's why I want you to join me. Pure fun. And almost free. And really, couldn't we all use more fun in our lives? Don't we all need to be doing more of the stuff that we really want to do? The living of life, and not just the have-tos?

Grab your sketchbook and join me!
