The Crafters Marketplace: Creative Doodling & Coloring Workshop


Talent is a pursued interest. Anything that you’re willing to practice, you can do.” ~ Bob Ross

I am so privileged to be invited as one of the guests for the Creative Doodling and Coloring Workshop by The Crafters Marketplace. I attended the class last Friday along with fellow mommy bloggers. It was also my first event with Mommy Bloggers PH!

When I arrived at the workshop area, I was greeted by this enchanting huge doodled wall, sarap kulayan ng wall! The room fosters an atmosphere of creativity and a safe feeling to express one’s self. I got excited after seeing it!


The workshop was led by a very seasoned artist, Ian De Jesus. He is a passionate artist. In fact, he is the same person who created the doodle on the wall, his biggest doodled art thus far! This gave me an idea of our future homeschool room, Lord willing.

We were provided with Faber-Castell Polychromos Colour Pencil, a high quality pencil used by professional artists around the world! Feeling professional with these!


Ian started with the basic rules. He taught us some coloring techniques. We also did some line drills and reviewed the color wheel. We’re all dumbfounded with how the color wheel has been very useful in choosing color combinations.

He also explained what “doodle” means. He reminded us of our school days where we used to draw at the back of our notebook while listening to the professor, that’s actually what doodle is!

I thought doodling was hard but the key is to do it without overthinking. The first step to creating your doodle art is to draw your beginning lines to start from. The design is really up to you. It can be abstract shapes or objects, you’re totally free. You will always look forward to what you will end up with when finished!

Here's my masterpiece
Creating doodle art is so much fun. It is such a great way to relax after a stressful day. We had a great time during the class. Ian made everything easy for us and he helped us to feel confident about ourselves. It was an art day we won't forget!

I got the chance to visit the The Crafters Marketplace store before the workshop started. It is full of stylish jewelry and accessories with intricate designs. They have a wide variety of handmade items! 


If you are looking for a perfect gift for any occasion, this is a great place to go. Rest assured all items are unique. 


There's a section where you can be creative and design your own jewelry! They create it while you wait. You can choose your chain or cord, pick your charms and beads or even layout your design.

Some of their materials are from US and Canada and they’ve been in business since November 2015
