Let's stretch our creative muscles and join Pam Garrison in this fun four-part celebration of doodling. In Pam’s classes, mistakes are embraced and you are encouraged to think outside of the box as you play with your designs and develop an expanded visual vocabulary. The great thing about doodling is that anyone can do it nearly anywhere. If you already doodle while on the phone, in meetings, or in the margins of your notebook, Pam’s class will help you take your creative doodling practice even further.  

This series is a facilitated learning circle offered with the help of Peer 2 Peer University and includes a series of video tutorials and open discussions hosted by the Culture & AV Division Librarians.

Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU) is a grassroots network of individuals who seek to create an equitable, empowering and liberating alternative to mainstream higher education. It works toward this vision by creating and sustaining learning communities in public spaces around the world.

Learning circles are free, regularly scheduled study groups for people who want to learn together. As librarians, we bring people and neighborhoods together to learn with one another.

This will be a virtual program presented on Zoom. You will receive an e-mail with the participation link one day before the program.

Please contact the Culture & AV Division (330.643.9015 or cadiv@akronlibrary.org) if you are unable to attend.
