ORANGE — Doodle, draw and sketch your way into a creative summer at the Stark Museum of Art. Practice drawing like a professional artist while sketching in the Museum’s galleries; connect with works of art through drawing games led by Stark Museum of Art educators, and make new friends.

This program is an opportunity for visitors of all ages to make their mark during their Museum visit. Whether you love to doodle during classes or meetings, or maybe drawing is a lifetime passion, Doodle Days will allow you to tap into your creativity and explore your artistic side.

Visitors to Doodle Days will enjoy a variety of drawing games and sketching opportunities each day. New games, activities, and drawing materials will be added daily, but some of our fan-favorites will be available throughout the series. This activity is perfect for the whole family!

Research has shown that people who doodle during meetings are 29% more likely to recall dull information. People who doodle tend to be more focused and present in the current moment. Doodling is a creative process that helps people problem solve and brainstorm new ideas. Drawing encourages fine motor skills and decision making in little ones, and they love it!

Doodle Days will be offered from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. every Friday beginning June 3 through August 12, 2016.
All materials are provided. Included with admission. Stark Cultural Members Free.
