Description

Doodling Meet-up is now online. This class will be both a one-on-one experience with Eleni Litt and a great opportunity to connect with other students with similar interests. You must have internet on a device with a built-in camera to participate. Doodling Meet Up is in its 5th year at the West Windsor Art Center!  Whether you're a seasoned artist or have never picked up a paintbrush, this class might be for you. Each session has a theme along with art prompts, quotes, and poems to get the creative juices flowing. Doodling encourages trusting your intuition and following where the energy takes you as we explore together a range of ideas, along with art techniques for both observational and abstract art. You definitely don’t need to think of yourself as an artist to explore this free-form art practice that is both relaxing and meditative, even as it builds confidence and skills in the context of a welcoming community.
