I have started with doodling because all you need is paper and a pen. I have been doodling since high school and got some pretty negative feedback from teachers. I have now learned that when a person doodles while listening, it helps to process the information. I would like to go back to history class and tell that to the teacher after he said “How can you pass the tests when you’re drawing all the time?”

I share that story in hopes of promoting doodling during meetings, classes, phone calls, or any time. It’s a fantastic tool for relaxation. I can get lost in drawings.

Creating something everyday doesn’t mean you have to spend hours and do a project from start to finish. I am working on this full page doodle a little at a time. Thinking about doing the whole thing at once is overwhelming. Take art projects in little Fun Sized pieces.

I’m not pressuring myself and have no expectations. There are some parts I really like and some not as much. That is another thing that happens – you may not be fully satisfied with every part of your creation. Focus on the parts you like, keep going until it’s done, and then see how it feels.

    • Yippy! All I really want to do is to inspire others to feel good about doing art – especially those who might not see themselves as creative.
