About Me

My photo

From School Teaching to Art and Craft Representative I have learned that I love to teach Art & Craft and see the joy that discovering their creativity brings to people's faces. I live in Queensland Australia & love the laid back lifestyle and the crazy Aussie sense of humour.

I share my art and craft adventures, products and knowledge on my blogs creativedoodlingwithjudy.blogspot.com & celticknotswithjudy.blogspot.com

My favourite trend? Teaching those who think they have no artistic or creative ability to discover they have.

I teach Creative Doodling, Celtic Knot and ScanNCut Classes.


Creative Doodling Classes

Beginner Classes 1 - 4.
 Creative Doodling Basics - 2 hour Class 
                          In this class you will learn the basic principles of Creative Doodling. How to follow pattern instructions. You will be taught some basic patterns you will be able to use on many other projects. You will create a beautiful flower and doodle it.

 Shading Basics - 2 hour class
                         You will be taught the basic principles of shading. These basic principles will allow you to make items look rounded, concave, as though the piece on top is casting a shadow over the item below, and how achieve depth in your pictures. These are very easy steps to learn, no artistic skill required for this. You will also be taught more doodle patterns and create a beautiful picture.

 A Splash of Colour - 2 hour class
                           In this class you will learn how colour will enhance your design, what colour to use and how to mix and match colours. How colour can be used the same as shading to give the illusion of depth, curved surfaces and overlapping. We will also use stencils and templates to add variety to your work. You will learn more doodle patterns and finish another wonderful piece of art.
 Pattern De-construction/Design - 2 hour class
                 Patterns can be found in nature and are also man made. We will look at how to design and construct your own simple doodle patterns. Also how to deconstruct patterns we find, to make them simple to draw over and over again. Your final art piece will be a combination of all you have learnt over the 4 classes and include many of your own Creative Doodles.
