Why attend or schedule a workshop?

The benefits of Doodle-ography are accessible to anyone, regardless of age or ability, but to ensure that you and your group get the most Doodle-ography has to offer, there are workshops to help "jump start" the process. If journals will be used in a group such as a classroom or church, an introductory workshop is highly recommended. Workshops are generally two hours long and are lead by Lindy Gifford, author of the Doodle-ography Journals. More intensive, half- and full-day workshops and retreats, including a process painting component, are also available. Brady Nickerson leads the painting portion of the longer workshops.

Please contact us to discuss the approach that best suits you and your group.

Workshops are a way to get off to a good start with the journal.
