One of the early 2021 initiatives Manitoba undertook to help folks winter during the pandemic was funding the arts for creative projects as part of a province wide stay safe at home program.  I was asked by the lovely folks at Wasagaming Community Arts if I would be interested in providing them with Meditative Meanderings, an instructional zendoodling tutorial, and was thrilled to help.  This was my first foray into the wonderful world of videoing live demos.  I admit it was quite the challenge, steep learning curve and frustrating struggle getting the equipment and software to work properly and to mentally sort out how to set the stage and do the recordings.  What was supposed to be a simple 20 minute demo ended up becoming a 3 part video set.   It finally all came together in the hands of Tye who worked his magic with editing and in the end I have to say it was a pleasure to collaborate with Wasagaming Community Arts to present these three meditative meandering zendoodling how-to videos as part of their Stay Safe at Home creative workshop series.  

Here are the youtube links for each video:
