Doodling is an English word which means sketching or drawing. It indicates drawings that are made quite unconsciously, for example during a meeting, phone call or lesson. Doodles that people create without thinking how to draw it on a paper.
Everyone can do it and when it will become an art-project, you will see a nice result. You absolutely do not need to be creative.
When you want to create a doodle during your vacation, you can let us now in advance that you want to receive our “Doodle-package” upon arrival. You pay the standard rate for the stay (mentioned on this website) and pay an extra fee of 50 euros.
For this amount you will receive upon arrival a canvas, a black marker, a pencil and documentation explaining how you can start making your doodle-painting. Also, you can use acrylic paint present on our location, which allows you to work with color on your “doodle”. You work independently, you decide how many hours you want to spend every day to this activity and at what time. Doodling is an individual process, and you receive no further assistance during this process. This way of working with a marker and paint is a very relaxing activity and while you are working on your painting there remains plenty of time to enjoy your holiday and the surrounding area.
Below a video and an example-doodle:
Monique Hendriks obtained her Bachelor degree of Social Work in 1994 and studied at the Social Academy “de Kopse Hof” in Nijmegen. During her studies she specialized herself in Creative Educational Work. During the time she worked as a social pedagogical worker, she provided creative activities for various groups.
Creativity can achieve growth in all areas and is very relaxing. You can gain more confidence, discover things about yourself that you did not know about and broaden your horizons with it. Intuitive painting is a special process because you do not only work with your hands but also with your mind, heart and soul. Moreover, it gives an extra dimension to your life because of the spiritual and meditative aspect of it.
You can perform all creative inspirational weeks solitary or together with people you bring with you. It not only provides you relaxation, but also insights that bring you close to yourself. Guidance or assistance is not needed during this process and is not included in the course fee. If, however, you are in a phase of your life in which you need personal assistance, you can contact us for additional rates.
This also applies to groups with special wishes and needs in terms of counseling or assistance. Of course you can also come over for a longer period to draw or paint. Please contact us to discuss your wishes and then we can provide you the rates which depend on the materials you want to use.
