Doodle Your Way to Mindfulness with Cartoonist Cara Bean

Join cartoonist Cara Bean in this hands-on, visual thinking, mindfulness workshop.

Cara walks participants through a series of creative exercises intended to lessen anxiety, build confidence, and grow creativity. Together, you’ll go over the basics of communicative drawing (stick figures allowed!) and develop the skills needed to doodle as a form of play and problem-solving.

No prior art experience is required.

This workshop will be held live via Zoom. It is free and open to all with advanced registration.
