Doodling is a natural way to be creative. We doodle when are on the phone when we are waiting at the doctor's or just watching TV. With Doodling Abstracts, you will learn doodling techniques that are more artistic. Tips about easy-to-use materials are included. You will combine paint with doodling. Painting materials can vary and are discussed in the videos.
In this course, there are two sections. Each section has a practice class before we actually start doodling larger projects. The first part has easy-to-do doodles. The second part has more challenging doodles.
Once you are doodling there are many things that you can do. This course includes examples of different styles that you can try. You can work totally abstractly or you can find different subjects from your paint spatters. In this course, you will do both. You will create abstracts, a nest, a landscape, a flower, and a garden.
All you need is a few gel pens or fine-tipped markers, a few colors of paint, and some sketchbook paper. This is a very easy and inexpensive class. You create work while watching TV, waiting for the doctor, waiting for your children while they are in sports, or have only a few minutes to yourself. Doodling takes minutes instead of hours. Join the group of creatives with very little time.
The goal of this class is for you to have a lot of fun being creative. Doodling is a fun and relaxing way to be creative. The end result is a beautiful array of lines and colors that is a feast for the eyes. Join me in my class Doodling Abstracts and have fun creating.

Doris fell in love with painting while she was living in Texas. Her neighbour invited her to come along to a painting class as a gesture of friendship and that changed her whole life. Painting has become a passion. Doris took a variety of courses in the U.S. and Canada.
In 2003, Doris was invited to Rivière-du-Loup as an artist for ‘La Marée aux 1000 Vagues’. She also received a Community Artist grant and had the opportunity to travel across Alberta as a guest artist. Doris was published in a desk calendar for the Association de la Femme in Quebec. Her work was chosen for a poster for the Association canadienne de l’éducation langagière francophone in 2004. Since that time, Doris has been featured in the magazines Art Avenue(Vancouver), Somerset Studio(U.S., Spring 2007) and Leisure Painter(U.K., Fall 2007).
