Doodling, Pink Sky


Study: Doodling Helps You Pay Attention

A new study suggests that idly doodling during meetings or boring lectures helps people pay attention and retain more information. 
Doodling forces your brain to expend just enough energy to stop it from daydreaming but not so much that you don't pay attention.

I found this 2009 study today while googling doodles to see what can be done with doodles.
Even in my early school years I always doodled, my notebooks and table top was always full of doodlings. In 5rd grade it was faces and in 7th grade it was drawing of shoes, that's when I decided to continue studing art.

Today while I talk on the phone I always doodle. My desk always have layers of paper to write notes and doodle while talking.

I`ve participated in Secret Postcard Project at Fresh Paint 4 exhibition,
Fresh Paint contemporary art fair in Tel Aviv, the fair initiated and implemented a number of artistic community projects including its successful Secret Postcard Project. Visiting the fair, I did not see my postcard so I assume someone bought it, money donated to art scholarships for  teenagers.

Clay Artproject, Fish

This is a great project to do with autistic adult, always a success.
I allways start with the technique of forming round shape balls the size of a cherry; I like this technique because I do not have to worry about kneading the clay well, and you get a very special boarder edge.

Using a paper plate as a base we filling the plate with clay balls.

Then I give out a cutout shape of a fish and help the members draw the outline of the fish with a sharp tool on the clay.
Once they had the ouline of the fish or object they used mosic stones to fill the inside of the fish.
Around the fish, the background was embossed with an icecream stick.
A layer of glue in put on the total artproject, once dry the paperplate can be removed.

This was done in 2 session using paper plates. 
The first part was a COLOR BLUE collage, using torn blue paper, tissue paper, yarn etc...

The secend session: the Gold fish, embossed aluminum sheet that was precut in the shape of the fish, then designing the frame with paint and color sand.
We stapled the 2 plates together and  stringed the fish in the frame.
