There are also several downloads for you as well as hints, tips and tricks.
You know me by now...I am not a "bells and whistles" type girl, and although at times I wish I was, I fall right back into the same way I have always been...
If you do not know what exactly that means, there are several places that I will give you links to so that you can laugh along the way, and perhaps even realize that YOU are also...
Now the first thing you need to know about this class is that doodling is a very simple skill that we can of course, complicate.
First, you need to make the decision right now that YOU are going to be in charge of the doodles and that the doodles are not going to be in charge of you and Second, there is NO perfection needed...or allowed! Maybe a little patience because although it is a simple skill, it will take time to develop your own style. Eventually, I promise, there will be that defining moment (which I will miss seeing) when the light bulb flickers on and you might even say "ahhh" out loud! (That is my most favorite part of this class when I am teaching it in person. )
Most Importantly, I need you to RELAX...there is no pressure, no hurry and no perfection needed. REMEMBER..YOU are in charge so leave all of your concerns and the need to be perfect all at the door, or on the floor, or outside..wherever you may be and
This class is the perfect place to RELAX & let your mind wander, which we need in our hustle bustle lives..BUT....there is a certain amount of danger associated with this class and technique....and that is that you may find yourself addicted to doodling. This might sound crazy, but just like cutting felt letters, stitching and baking...doodling is what I do to RELAX.
Q: How long will this class be open and available ?
A: The class starts as soon as you sign up...and as soon as you finish it. It is all posted and ready for you to start as soon as you are ready!
Q: What supplies do I need?
A: I am a "use what you have" kinda girl, so let's start with what you already have! Paper (cardstock & plain ol' computer paper). There is more information and links (Doodle Tools) for you to check out the "goods" that I use in the classroom! To start..all you need is
- a pencil
- an eraser
- a few black tip pens
- some crayons, any kinda of markers....whatever.
This class is a "work at your own pace" "work at any time of the day" (just do not let your boss see!) "Work as long as you want"...the point is, you log on and you do what you want, when you want.
If you have any other questions, please just email me, which brings me to my first request. If you ever need to ask me anything, not just about doodling, please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have a blog, I would love to list a link over on the sidebar of the classroom so that we can all get to know each other and see each others creativeness!!! Please send your blog address to me at the above email address and be sure to insert "I have a blog" in the subject line.
Lastly, I LOVE and always promote sharing and "passing it on" but in this case, I want to ask that you do not share or pass on your user name and password to our class. I will ask that you do share the class info and encourage your friends to doodle with us!
Okay, that is it! who's ready???? on your mark..get set..
