Workshop: Saturday, December 12 (Make a Reservation)

Free. Reservation required to access Zoom information.

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.
