What’s it all about?
Continuing our exploration of the wonderful world of abstract illustration (or Doodling for Relaxation) in this session will look at creating matix and grid based patterns to further expand your “pattern vocabulary”
This Creative Meditation art form is a gateway to relaxation, meditation and mindfulness and will help you achieve that wonderful Zen like meditative state, which aside from its sheer enjoy-ability, is so beneficial to both your mental and physical well-being, so put down the yoga mat and pick up a pen instead!
It is easy, fun & portable and anyone can do it, no artistic talent needed, all you need is a desire to try something new and fun.
Warning: Side effects can be – Outbursts of spontaneous creativity with associated smiling, growing sense of tranquillity and a burgeoning passion for fine pens and papers!
What will we cover?
Be guided through the creation of several more complex patterns, primarily how to work with grids and matrix’s, how to create them, then play with and bend them.
What will you need?
- Your favourite pens, (ideally include a fine liner), a pencil (sharpener maybe?)
