Check out what happened at the last Doodlefest in Brighton, UK!

Who: Everyone!

Doodling is for everyone! You don’t have to be an artist to enjoy it!

Doodlefest is also totally kid friendly.

What: Doodling!

Doodlefest is a two-day gathering of a diverse group of local artists and the Norfolk community around the idea of doodling, collaboration, spontaneity, and imperfection.

Doodling is an accessible, relatable way for all people to get together around art. Get ready for some open doodling, iPad doodling, Post-It doodling, wall doodling, string doodles, 3D doodles, mural doodling, doodling workshops, and as much doodle paper as we can get our hands on.

When: May 18-19, 2019

Saturday Open Doodle!

The space will be open, the paper will be fresh, and there will be doodles for everyone. Bring the kids to check out the kids’ station. Stay as long or as short as you want. Suggested donation: $10

Sunday Workshops!

Get some training in the noble art of doodling from some of Norfolk’s favorite artists. Schedule and tickets coming soon.

How: Teamwork

Doodlefest is the brainchild of artist Roy Petersen, but it has taken an amazing team and many generous donations to make it happen. Doodlefest is a not-for-profit event with the aim of bringing art right into the hands of anyone with a pen and a blank margin.

All proceeds go to the Norfolk artists who participate and to the H.E.R. Shelter Sweet Haven Bakery Program.

If you would like to donate time, talent, or art supplies (yay!), just fill out the Connect With Us form at the bottom of this page. Doodle Coordinator, Amy Lafreniere of The Solver Space, will get right back to you!

Doodlefest is eternally grateful for the generosity of these beautiful local businesses!
