Doodle Designs Class - First class of 2009!

I am so excited! Melanie and I just signed up for our first art class of 2009!

It is another online class called Doodle Designs taught by Susan Sorrell. It begins Jan. 12 and continues with lessons for 6 weeks.

I love to doodle. It brings out so many creative ideas and is just plain fun! I cannot wait for this class to begin. What a fun way to begin the year!

Here is the class description:

Have you ever wondered what you could do with that doodle on the napkin or notepad? A doodle can be a way to awaken your sense of creativity and self-discovery. This type of drawing is born of intuition and is a great tool for connecting with your inner voice. I believe a doodle can spark a series of artworks when you are stumped for ideas. This type of “play” is important to everyone who wants to grow creatively. I use doodles as the basis of a lot of my own artwork and it has helped me to expand my artistic voice.In this workshop, students will be using doodle drawings as a basis for embroidery and fiber art pieces. We will take doodle drawings that been inspired by “prompts” to see how you interpret ideas into drawings and expand them into abstract works of art. A variety of art materials will be used to help discover your inner child. No drawing experience is needed, just a sense of fun.

Open to all levels.

Lesson Outline:
Lesson 1 - Doodling
Lesson 2 - Paper Collage Doodle
Lesson 3 - Stamp Doodle
Lesson 4 - Fabric Collage Doodle
Lesson 5 - Embroidery Doodle
Lesson 6 - Fabric Paint Doodle

Would you like to join us? Please let me know if you sign up. It is going to be so much fun!

Melissa, this is really fascinating. I doodled my whole childhood in school (and used to get in trouble for it). I wonder how many artists out there spent years doodling...such an interesting topic!!!
have fun in your class. Isn't it wonderful to have a sister who shares your talents and interests?
