Doodling is Thinking: 21 Doodle Days

A Visual Learning Workbook for Teachers, Parents & Kids

Diane Bleck is on a mission to unlock creativity at home, school and work. For the past 20 years she has been teaching people how to doodle to create learning solutions for companies large and small. Recently she was invited to teach a doodle course in her daughter's 7th Grade classroom. This has become a yearly tradition for her family. At the end of the class, a student raised their hand and said, "I wish you come into our classroom every day to teach us." And so Diane got an idea to build a workbook that was designed for just that. A series of lessons where she could teach doodling in schools and homes around the world.
