Big Draw Chicago 2013
“Discovery Doodles: How You Can Draw From Infancy To Industry
Big Draw Chicago is a month long city wide arts festival focusing on drawing and informal art making. Big Draw events took place in neighborhoods all throughout the city for the entire month of October. One of the events was held at Catalyst Ranch, a co-sponsor of Big Draw Chicago. We hosted Diane Durand’s event “Discovery Doodles: How You Can Draw From Infancy To Industry.”
Diane Durand is the founder of Discovery Doodles and author of a book of the same name. She is a world renowned Graphic Facilitator and thought leader who has made it her life’s passion to use what she has learned about creativity, doodling and coloring to unlock the creativity inside all people, so “we may become the Creators of Change we want to see in the world.”
As part of Discovery Doodles Diane proved that anyone can draw. We learned the basics of doodling from which there is no limit to potential creative output. In four hands-on stations we tried some drawing techniques, investigated technology and did some quick tablet demos of how to transform where you brainstorm. In addition, participants learned how to apply the drawing skills they gained to everyday experiences.
