The Doodle Challenge for Schools
Building Creative Confidence Through Doodling
The Doodle Challenge (TDC) offers solutions for educational institutions to inspire students to unleash their creativity, foster problem-solving and storytelling skills while providing strategies for increased mindfulness. Based in Neuroscience, Psychology and Design/Art theory, every TDC solution utilizes research-backed methods that can have a profound effect on both student and teacher wellness.
The Doodle Challenge was created out of a need to hone better storytelling skills, combat creative burnout in individuals/teams as well as aid in reducing stress created from life/work situations that can effect cogitative function, and artistic expression. Doodling also helps you learn! According to multiple research studies, doodling has been found to aid in brainstorming, processing complex concepts and aids in information retention and recall.
Setting up a TDC workshop or instituting the Doodle Challenge as a common classroom practice as part of a SWP (School Wellness Plan) can help educational institutions to foster a positive environment that promotes enhanced learning, creativity and health.
