    PRESENTER: Roxanne Glaser  -  aka SuperDoodleGirl

    This workshop is sponsored by the San Fernando Regional.

    This workshop is free but you must be a current member of SfC.                          

    In this class, you will create a gorgeous abstract work of art using hand drawn letters and a watercolor technique. Through this process, learn how to help settle your thoughts and tap into your innate creativity. The project will be improvisational and responsive as you work with a gratitude quote for the content focus. Quiet your mind, connect with breath, and focus on the lines as you follow the movement of the pen and the colors on your page.


    ROXANNE GLASER is a prolific process artist who sparks joy with her art and illustrations. In elementary school, Roxanne doodled throughout the day, filling pages with imaginative swirls and letters. When her husband and sister passed away unexpectedly, she turned to art to help process the grief and begin rebuilding her life.

    As SuperDoodleGirl, she helps people get unstuck using simple tools and techniques to connect with their creative super powers. Inspired by nature and her personal yoga practice, Roxanne’s art touches hearts and minds with themes of transformation and encouragement.

    In 2022, Roxanne launched her online workshops and classes to help nurture creativity for students anywhere at any time. Her current offerings include art journaling, lettering, creativity, and mindfulness.

    You can learn more about Roxanne’s coloring books, journals, and online workshops at www.superdoodlegirl.com. Be sure to join her mailing list for updates and new offerings.

    ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

    This class is designed for those who are already familiar with Copperplate script and want a refresher.  On our first day, we will review the minuscule letters and all the nitty gritty details such as tine manipulation for squaring tops and bottoms of strokes, terminal dots, spacing, and consistency exercises.  Our second day will be dedicated to tuning up our majuscule letters.  We will review the underlying characteristics that unite them as a family and ways we can improve our capital flourishes.

    Workshop will take place over Zoom. Two sessions on Wednesday, July 5 and Wednesday, July 12, 2023, from 10am - 1pm.

    REGISTRATION:  

    Workshop fee:  $25
