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.
