Using Color, Shape, and Emotions for Self-awareness

Although meditative coloring books are popular, you may still find your mind stressing over your long to-do list.  With meditative doodling, you start with a blank page and a collection of colored pencils/markers. After a few warm-up exercises in colors, shapes, and emotions, we jump into a guided meditative doodle. Topics can vary but all will engage the mind in determining a pattern to put on the paper. There are no pre-set images; just shapes that organically appear.  No artistic training is required -- we just doodle! Average session is 60-90 minutes. 

** Perfect for corporate events, bridal showers, baby showers, empowerment workshops, and home shows where like-minded friends gather. Suitable for all ages including teens!  The Duchess is also available to do one-on-one training, if you prefer a more personalized session. Prices average around $10/person but vary depending on the event and if supplies are provided. Contact me so we can design the best event for your group! 


Workshops designed to help educators and their students examine the benefits of mental health.  Using a class theme provided by the teacher, The Doodling Duchess will create an individualized program specifically for the students.  For example, tying together how to handle feelings and the spring season allowed these students (photo right) to visualize their emotions AND create a beautiful garden of Feeling Flowers.  

Emotions, themes, and doodle projects can be individualized for whatever the classroom needs are.  This workshop can be taught in person (following COVID protocols) or virtually. Classrooms provide the materials.  Cost: $150 for a three part virtual session or a one time in-person session (60-90 minutes long) 

    ** Suitable for grades 1 - 12.
    ** College level students - adapted appropriately.

  "Monica did a fabulous 3 lesson doodling unit with my first graders. She was able to pull in our science standard of plants with social emotional learning all while doing the art of doodling!! The children loved working with Monica and were so proud of their finished sunflowers! "  Maggie Braden / First Grade / Woodland Elementary    

Community Events

Workshops are often sponsored through other businesses like Art Bayou, ChocolaTeas, and Portage Community Education Center. See UPCOMING EVENTS for such listings. 



We had the best time! It was rewarding to take the time to quietly sit and focus on a future goal and just let the energy flow into the doodles!

I had an amazing, relaxing, enlightened evening with this pair of ladies. I learned lots about myself through numerology and opened some doors through meditative doodling.
