Workshop: Sunday, February 28 from 1pm to 3:30pm ET

Join Zoom Meeting

Adults and children 12 years and up unless accompanied by an adult.

This hands-on workshop is for novices and experienced artists.

In this workshop we will play with color. We will learn a little about the science of color, about color interactions and layering. We will also explore the psychology and symbolism of color. Color holds power. Color impacts our moods, emotions, and behaviors. It can also be a source of important information about our world.

Doodling is spontaneous, uncensored drawing. Doodling helps us process our emotions, alleviate stress and develop new possibilities for creative expression.

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.
