"I love that I can keep working on my Doodle Art projects at home...there's always more to think about. Every project is something new but we work with different themes each session. Mrs. Thometz is so creative and a really inspiring teacher."- Grace T. 5th grader

"Doodle Art is more than a craft class - it's a learning experience in creative thinking and the process of making art. The projects are fun and engaging but also challenge and encourage my daughter to think outside the box, literally. She looks forward to it every week and hasn't missed class in 2 years." - Jakkie, 5th grade mom
Doodle Art And Design is a tiny teaching art studio, gallery and retailer of its signature Doodle Art & Design Kits. The philosophy behind the studio is that everyone needs a creative outlet and the studio is here for that purpose. Doodle Art offers classes for both kids and adults as well as spring break and summer camps.
Most classes begin with a fun slideshow of the topic of the class. This is a relaxing way to begin the class and helps to give everyone some inspiration before we begin each project. While everyone in class is given the same materials each person will make a unique piece of art. We offer enough of a framework to be successful but enough freedom to be creative. Doodle Art & Design began in 2014 as a mobile art program at Field Park Elementary School in Western Springs. Here is what some of our students think about our classes:
"My son can't get enough of your class! The sword he made is awesome and has been played with more than all of his Christmas presents combined!"Clare, Kindergarten Mom
