Lyrical Abstraction

Art Lab

The Art of Doodling
Liz Lescault


Sunday, January 31, 1:00 - 3:30 ET

This Doodling workshop is a repeat of the workshop originally sponsored by the Phillips Collection, a major museum located in Washington DC. The workshop filled up quickly and many were not able to register in time. This hands-on workshop is for both novices and experienced artists. Doodling is spontaneous uncensored drawing made with ease, often absentmindedly. It helps us process our emotions, alleviate stress, spur insight, and develop new possibilities for creative expression. American Lyrical Abstraction is an art movement that emerged in the 60s–70s that is characterized by experimental, loose, and expressive style. This movement was born out of a desire to create a physical and sensory experience for the viewer. This workshop will explore intuitive expression in the spirit of Lyrical Abstraction through doodling. Participants will be encouraged to forgo preconceptions and judgement, embrace the creative process, and play. We will explore the process and the product of our artmaking, sharing insights, joys, and concerns.Materials: At least six sheets of 8 x 11 paper or larger. Any drawing implements (sketching, mechanical, or colored pencils and fine tipped magic markers, fine point and ultra fine point Sharpies)

Cost: $15 - $20 / no one is turned away for lack of funds.
