an art exhibit that aims to raise the status of doodling in fine art & in the public at large
The aim of "The Doodlists" is to raise awareness of the use of doodling in the creation of artwork and to promote the idea that doodling is not a waste of time, but a valuable resource for artists and the public at large. Doodling helps you gain focus, it helps you retain information and it helps you find creative solutions to problems.
"The Doodlists" will be a presentation of the state of the doodle particularly in regard to its use in fine arts. The exhibit is scheduled to run from April 24 - May 17, 2015, at artspace gallery in Richmond, VA.
In conjunction with The Doodlists Art Exhibition, Susan Singer and Dana Frostick will lead a workshop in the creation of Zendoodles and Elaborate Doodles respectively. Zendoodles will be taught in the morning. Elaborate Doodles will follow lunch. Online registration is available.
