Drawn to Gratitude

with Roxanne Glaser, SuperDoodleGirl 

Calming the mind with breathing exercises and mindful doodling creates a space for the subconscious to settle into stillness and gratitude. The beauty of doodling as a mindfulness activity is that it is intuitive and simple to learn.
 
The Morning Program (free)
Learn the drawn to gratitude process using the phrase “Gratitude Creates Abundance.” In this 60-minute session, you will learn how to sketch your letters, create connections, and calm your mind. Due to the fast-paced nature of this session, we will all use the same phrase. Roxanne will provide a demonstration of how she adds color. 

The Afternoon Workshop ($20 for members; $35 for non-members)
Take your new skills to the next level as we explore drawn letters and doodles through several iterations. In this 3-hour workshop, you will learn how to layout words on the page, creatively connect letters and words, and use watercolors and pens for embellishment. Quiet your mind, connect your breath, and focus on the lines as you follow the movement of the pen and colors on your page. Feel your preferred creativity state gently quiet your inner critic.

The November program will be all about Gothicized Italic, presented by long time WCG member and 3-time past president Jane Stanfield. Gothicized Italic has similarities to both broad edge styles of Blackletter and Italic, but it is more readable than Blackletter and more pointed, livelier, and more expressive than Italic.  Whether you are a Blackletter or Italic aficionado, you will love adding this hand to your repertoire.
