    Why Draw?

    Drawing can be an incredible act of self-care. It has the power to promote well-being and decrease stress and anxiety.

    Who it's for.

    My online-class is a safe place for people who are afraid to draw, have never drawn, or want brush up on their drawing skills.

    What I teach.

    Simple drawing exercises that trick your brain into a creative mode. These are researched methods that have worked for me and most importantly, my students.

    Where.

    Everything is available online. All the class recordings are uploaded in the member's portal for a do-it-a-your-own-pace style of learning.

    Welcome.

    Testimonials

    The Healing Power of Creativity

    “Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.” Franklin Roosevelt.

     

    For those of you familiar with Facebook or Instagram, you may have come across a little monk & his elephant companion, the creations of Molly Hahn and better known as Buddha Doodles.

     

    I have had Buddha Doodles appearing each day on my Facebook timeline for a couple of years now, and in turn I share them with my Facebook friends. The drawings are so simple but incredibly sweet and the affirmations and quotes which accompany them are heartfelt and thought provoking. I was so taken with Molly’s images that I commissioned her and now have 3 Buddha Doodle originals hanging up in my home.

     

    Since beginning my mindfulness journey, I have come to learn that being creative is incredibly conducive to “just being”. I am a writer and although I love the idea of one day being able to stand in front of an easel to paint and create beautiful, original art for myself and if I was lucky...for others too, the reality is that I just couldn’t ever get it right and my pencils and drawing pads got shut away in a cupboard, never seeing the light of day again.

     

    However, when Molly advertised her “Mindful Drawing with Molly”; a short course which promised a “journey of discovering your creative superpowers through drawing, no matter what level you're at”. I decided to take the plunge and have a go. It was only 2 weeks plus a bonus week and conducted in the safe environment of a closed Facebook group and a weekly, hour long online live session. I wasn’t quite sure how she was going to teach us art online, but she did and it worked beautifully.

     

    Through a previous creative workshop, I already knew that creativity is a powerful tool to help relieve stress and practice mindfulness, but Molly also pointed out that Buddha Doodles had been born out of the need for an outlet to work with her emotions and facilitate healing. Whilst still recovering from a car accident, I certainly had some emotional stuff going on and definitely needed some healing.

     

    As I live in the UK, I checked in with Molly that I would still be able to participate and all was good. Once on the course, I was amazed at how many people there were from all of the over the world all online and most of us juggling different time zones. The atmosphere in the online “classroom” was buzzing, Molly was like a bubbly bottle of fizz and the hour’s lessons flew by – sadly.

     

    Once you have signed up for the course, you have access to an online portal where each day, was a lesson for you to work through comprising of a daily ritual of creativity, called “Taking my pencil for a walk”. This was coupled with some short meditation time and an opportunity to work listening to your favorite instrumental pieces of music, although I have to confess to cheating one day and listened to Disturbed! Hey, it worked for me!!

     

    I personally opted to do my lessons first thing in the morning and it really was a great way to start my day, I found the exercises incredibly calming and therapeutic. Throughout the 2 weeks of the course and since, I have found that when I am feeling tense or anxious, I have taken out my pad and taken my pencil for a walk which was exactly that.

     

    Just allowing your pencil to move over the page and create shapes – initially it felt like scribble until we realized that within all the abstract shapes, we could find images and very soon birds, monsters, balloons, hearts all started to appear on our pages. We highlighted them and added color. Each day, proud of our achievements, the closed Facebook group would be gallery to our efforts.

     

    Molly records all of the online sessions, so you are able to watch again or catch up if you weren’t able to attend the live session. Throughout the course, we were made aware of our inner critic and each time it raised its voice which it did often, we were to answer “Is that true? Is it the ultimate truth? Soon, I think most of us managed to silence that voice for a while and share our achievements with the rest of the group.

     

    The cost of the course is $75 and for that you get your 2 weeks of online tuition from Molly and the third is a bonus week. The schedule of the week is as follows:

     

    Week 1

    Upside down drawing exercises which is a proven technique that tricks your brain into creative mode. We were given an image which we had to turn upside down and then draw it. The results were incredible!

     

    Week 2

    During this session, we took tools and techniques learnt from the first week and put them together in a series of personally tailored drawing exercises.

     

    Bonus Week

     

    Podcast interview with an industry professional and Molly demonstrated the makings of a Buddha Doodle

     

    For me the workshop was worth every penny. By the end of the second week, I had paintings and drawings which I was proud to show off, not only in the closed group but also on my own Facebook page; highlighting the fact that they had all been drawn upside down – what a revelation that was.

     

    Molly is a great teacher and comes across as incredibly knowledgeable but also a little vulnerable which for me, made her real and relatable. I am amazed how much I have learnt in such a short space of time and will definitely be signed up for her next course. Molly runs these courses every quarter and details of the next date can be found at http://www.mindfuldrawing.org/

     

    If you want to learn a lovely way to practice mindfulness, then I would definitely give this course a go. It is perfect for existing artists, complete beginners like myself or as Molly says “people who are afraid to draw”.

    Go on, sign up and create your own doodle masterpiece!!
