Illustrator, Debbie Ohi, is a strong proponent of doodling.
She is trying to encourage children to doodle, too. This summer she is hosting a doodle sharing opportunity for kids.
DEBBIE'S 2015 SUMMER "LOOK AGAIN" CHALLENGE FOR YOUNG ARTISTS
This summer, have some fun with turning found objects into doodles! If you're a young artist 12 years old or younger, I'd love to see your work! I'll display some of the art in a gallery later this summer and will also send out prizes. Deadline: August 14, 2015.
To read more about the challenge, visit Debbie Ohi's website. She recently (May 12) published a picture book, Where Are My Books? It is on order, so look for it to arrive soon.
Zentangle is a "hot" artsy-crafty-type activity which could be considered a form of doodling. It uses repetitive patterns and is reported to increase focus, creativity, and relaxation. We have several zentangle books in our collection in the 741 section.
