WHAT HAPPENS IN A BEAN DOODLING WORKSHOP?

I believe that drawing is for everyone. You don't have to be the best, just willing to try.

In my workshops, I guide participants through a series of playful drawing activities. The sketches we'll create will culminate in a complete creative experience, which are often surprising and always fun. Benefits include:

TAPPING INTO YOUR ARTISTIC SELF

    •    Addressing negative beliefs about one's artistic ability

    •    Accepting that doodling is always available for everyone

ACTIVATING YOUR INNATE BRAIN POWER

    •    Stimulating free-thinking

    •    Sparking inspiration

    •    Fostering creativity

EXPERIENCING MINDFULNESS

    •    Reducing stress

    •    Improving concentration

BUILDING COMMUNITY

    •    Giving and receiving peer encouragement

    •    Making personal connections
