The Art of Doodling

Dancing with the Magic of Circles

Art Lab: The Art of Doodling
Liz Lescault


Wednesday, April 14, 6:30 - 8:30 pm ET

In this Art Lab we will incorporate circles and spirals into our art-making. We will also explore geometric symbolism and it’s effect on our art and lives. Geometric shapes have been part of human religious symbolism for thousands of years. Circles are among the oldest of geometric symbols, and commonly represent unity, wholeness, and infinity. Pythagoras called them the most perfect of creative forms, without beginning or end. In Buddhist philosophy, a circle stands for enlightenment and perfection. Spirals are related to circles and are fundamental to the underlying structure of natural forms. Spirals and concentric rings are associated with shamanism and altered states of consciousness. This workshop will not just be about making art but about the different ways we experience art and how it affects us. We will integrate movement, art, and playful sharing into our art making experience and explore both the process and the product of our art practice sharing insights, joys and concerns. Suggested Materials: 8 sheets or 8×12 paper or larger, school pencil, mechanical pencil, and/or sketching pencils, and fine tipped and ultra fine tipped Sharpie magic markers in a variety of colors, (optional) colored pencils: strongly suggested: Prismacolor Premier (soft core) or equivalent quality Registration:

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