Students Get Lost in Creative Doodling on Metal Workshop

In this class, students doodled with intention through metal embossing.  This technique is sculptural, Zen-like, and simply gorgeous to look at. Instructor Charr taught participants how to use embossing tools and various techniques. Students embarked on a type of doodling that allows for freedom while creating line and design.

What at first glance may look complicated is actually very simple— each deliberate stroke at a time.  Dots, lines, curves, circles and squares all flowing into one another. Per Charr:

“The intention is to be adventurous.  We may not even know specifically where we are going or what it will look like in the end.  It can almost be a kind of artistic meditation.  The beautiful part is you don’t need to be an ‘artist’.  You’re already creative even if you don’t realize it.”
