In this training you will learn to facilitate the games, image enhancements, and Double Doodle variations offered by the course Double Doodle Play: A Window to Whole-Brain Vision. This basic, experiential approach to art uses the Double Doodle activity from Brain Gym® in mixed-media projects to explore visual skills and hand-eye coordination for sustained attention in the midfield. The homeplay for this teacher training course is to submit, by email to the instructor, a Double Doodle teaching portfolio.

About your Double Doodle teaching portfolio:
It’s not too soon to start compiling your artwork! To teach this free-flowing expression of the Double Doodle activity, you’ll put together a collection of at least 20 examples of your own Double Doodle drawings and at least 20 more done by others, to serve as your teaching portfolio. Some of these can be on 8-1/2 x 11 paper, but at least half should be 11 x 14 or larger. Some will probably be quick sketches, yet please include at least five pieces for which you have used layered colors. A sample profile is like below:
