Since I have memory, I remember having a note pad at school, college or at pretty serious meetings at work. Yes, I took notes of the main ideas, but my hand has a mind of his own and near my notes there were always some random simple and elaborated patterns that sometimes represent objects, some others they were just what I call a “primitive sort of art”. The repetition of innocent patterns taking sometimes complicated shapes can be seen in ceramics, textiles and utilitarian pieces from Ancient Worldwide Cultures made centuries ago. Sure the one I can tell the most about is the pre-Incas and Incas art of my beloved Peru!
Through the years I find out that scientist researchers made different tests and investigations that proof that what is call DOODLING and/or TANGLING are THERAPEUTIC artistic activities that reduce stress, keep you calm and improve cognitive performance.
Many times I heard people complaining about their lack of artistic talent. And here is when the wonder of doodling comes! Once you get familiar drawing with ink a few traces, your hand will start “thinking” by itself and making patterns that you didn’t have in mind when you start drawing. Adding a few real elements and doodling or painting them will result in an art work that you could hang in your walls! You will see that there’s no right or wrong and you can improve your skills faster and easier than you thought. With no pressure at all the peace of spirit; mind and soul will come out leaving apart the stress, the lack of concentration or any other negative attitude.
My dream is to share with you how to turn your doodling in a piece of visual art .Come to one of our workshops! Join me into this journey and together we will find out the inner artist in you.
