Sketchbook Doodle Playdate: Feed Your Creative Soul!

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

More than anything, this class is meant to get you creating! Every day. Whether it' for 5 minutes or 5 hours, creating doesn't have to be a huge ordeal, requiring huge chunks of time. No! With your sketchbook and watercolors in hand, you can be creative just about anywhere, at any time.

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 each day to feed your creative soul without dedicating hours on end, or creating a huge mess. 

 No matter what your preferred creative medium is, your sketchbook is your creative home base, the place where you can go to experiment with line, ideas, color, and texture; the place where you can create without fear of messing up, in fact it is the perfect place to PRACTICE messing up, perhaps the most essential of skills for an artist, and for life in general!

In this class I will guide you through doodling warm-ups, and watercolor painting, and then I will walk you through creating a doodled page in your sketchbook. I will give you foundational steps and inspiration to continue creating + creating + creating.

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 dishes?

Grab your sketchbook and join me!
