Sketchbook Sessions:
Doodling

Doodling is a wonderful way to pass the time, and many of us find ourselves doing it throughout the day: while in a meeting, listening to a teacher or a webinar, or when we’re trying to get our brain to focus. But the best part about doodling is that sometimes they turn into bigger ideas! Join us for April’s Sketchbook Sessions on doodling, where we’ll experiement with ways to change up our doodle habits!
