Learn to de-stress and express yourself creatively with Zen Doodling, an instruction manual about the popular activity that combines the calming benefits of meditation with the soothing effects of drawing.
This unique take on relaxation doesn't require any artistic training, special tools, or art equipment. With just a pen and a scrap of paper, you can create the simple, repetitive drawing patterns that boost creative confidence and reduce stress. Author and illustrator Carolyn Scrace offers simple instructions and many beautiful examples to inspire artists and non-artists alike.
Included are a range of exercises from simple patterns using lines and shapes to more complex mandalas, portraits, and even personal alphabets that incorporate depth and color. There are great ideas for adding a Zen touch to fabric, journals, china, glass, and more. Also included are basic lessons on color theory and light and shade, plus a helpful glossary of relevant terms.
With down-to-earth language and engaging design, Zen Doodling offers a distinctive approach to artistic expression, creativity, and personal serenity.
