What else do I need to know? Is there anything I need to provide?
You can do this course with basic materials such as paper, pencil, ruler, pen and some coloured pencils. I will also provide a list of other materials which you may find will enhance your experience of doodling - this will be posted on Canvas prior to the first session.
Course aim:
To equip learners with basic nature doodle skills, boosting their creative confidence and enjoyment of doodling as both an art and a tool for mindfulness.
Course description:
Enjoy the feel-good effects of flower doodling as you learn simple ways to draw beautiful Springtime flowers and foliage (some realistic and some imaginary). Practice embellishing them with coloured pencils and learn how to add cool and warm shading for extra effect. Ideal for beginners, or those wishing to be inspired by new art techniques. This term we will also enjoy the experience of doodling for mindfulness with two easy but effective techniques. We will use all of our work to decorate greetings cards or to create lovely pictures which you can frame. Join this friendly, creative course, no experience necessary just have a go and have fun.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. Draw at least 3 Springtime themed flower and nature doodles, suitable for use as greetings cards or pictures.
2. Know how to add cool and warm shading with coloured pencils.
3. Experience 2 ways to use doodling as a mindfulness activity.
4. Enjoy and feel more confident about your doodling skills and know at least one benefit of doodling.
5. Prepare a piece of artwork and share it on a digital platform

Your tutor will use tasks to see how you are learning, which may include quizzes, question and answer, small projects, discussion, written or practical work. Your tutor will give you feedback on your learning and progress.
