This Neuro Doodle Art Lesson is inspired by Neurographic Art and is great for teaching mindfulness in the art room. This line drawing design project will fit in beautifully to any high school art curriculum. It requires no previous art experience and is a great first day of school art lesson or as a design based activity anytime of year. The final pen and ink line designs with watercolor and or marker look great as a hallway or bulletin board display and make a great conversation piece for meet the teacher or back to school night. Students love the results and the free form designs help them build skills and confidence in art.

This lesson includes student-centered video demonstrations and slideshows that are ready to use and make it excellent for distance learning, homeschool art, or in the traditional classroom setting. This middle or high school art project can even be done with a substitute teacher.

If you are looking for more ways to incorporate Neuro Doodle Art into your classroom, this lesson pairs beautifully with my Layering Marker and Colored Pencil Crystal Project. The crystals look amazing paired with the Neuro Doodle Designs.


The slideshows and video demonstrations are linked to the handouts. They have easy-to-scan QR codes which are so convenient for when students are absent or miss a demonstration. They can see the step-by-step drawing tutorials and learn how to complete the project from any device at any time quickly and easily simply by scanning the QR code. You don't have to waste time repeating the instructions when students are out.

Designed for both Beginner - Advanced Art Classes

Artists just beginning start with very simple lines and use larger shapes. They explore different line weights and learn how to create thick and thin lines to create variety and unity in their work. They are also encouraged to create compositions that have a focal point or center of interest. The process is simple enough for even younger artists to achieve great results and gain confidence in their line drawing skills.

More advanced artists can incorporate expressive imagery such as portraiture, landscape, still-life, etc. into their designs. Adding free-flowing lines or shapes over their drawings helps encourage them to loosen up and challenges them to experiment with adding expressive touches to their work.
