Creative Doodling
Level: Beginner

Stretch your creative muscles and join Pam Garrison in this fun four-part celebration of doodling. In Pam’s classes, mistakes are embraced and you are encouraged to think outside of the box as you play with your designs and develop an expanded visual vocabulary. The great thing about doodling is that anyone can do it, nearly anywhere! If you already doodle while on the phone, in meetings or in the margins of your notebook, Pam’s class will help you take your creative doodling practice even further.

Creative Doodling: Exploring Pens and Lettering
Level: Beginner

Pam has never met a pen she didn’t want to try. While a basic pen is great for doodling, playing with other pens and markers can help expand your style and the look of your doodles. In the second part of Creative Doodling, Pam introduces you to a few of her favorite tools and also shows you some fun lettering styles. Learn how to start organically doodling, filling the page with patterns and colors as you go.

Creative Doodling: Working on Different Types of Paper

The surface upon which you draw can have a huge impact on your doodles. Follow along as Pam doodles all over solid, printed and vintage papers. Learn about responsive doodling, using inspiration from what is already on the printed surface to create your design. As a bonus, Pam shows you an easy way to gather your papers into a homemade sketchbook and how to build a large-scale design to create doodled wrapping paper.
