Oct 8 - Doodle, Write, & Play with Beth Williams

Bring a favorite quote, poem, song lyric, or short story and let's explore doodling with it!

Using your handwriting as an element in doodling can be a powerful way of telling a story and finding a voice for your art. Learn some ways of letting go of perfection in art making by playing with different techniques with no specific result in mind.

We’ll also talk about Beth’s love for the book "Wreck This Journal," a great tool for relieving yourself of perfectionism.

You’ll want to have some sort of “canvas” to work on -- plain white paper, colored paper, cardboard, or whatever you have around the house. And have your favorite art supplies on hand -- markers, colored pencils, pens, and more. We can tell each other our favorite supplies to use!

Format: Taught LIVE via Zoom

Date/Time: Thursday, October 8, 7-8 pm

Suggested Donation: $20 (See Registration Info in box at upper right. Then register using form below.)

Additional photos: One of Beth’s "Wreck this Journal." A second doodling is one of a couple she's done recently around the written word and storytelling in response to a prompt, with description of artist’s thought process.
