Zara Gonzalez Hoang of Manka, a compulsive doodler, will lead a workshop on using daily doodles to jumpstart your creativity. The workshop will start with a short lecture and a bit of show and tell, then we'll dive headlong into the art of doodling.
Workshop participants will go through a series of warm-ups Zara uses to get her brain going then do a series of doodle “challenges” that should get everyone thinking about doodling as more than just a mindless exercise.
So bring your pens, pencils, markers and crayons and get ready to doodle.
What we’ll cover:
• Doodle Warm-ups to help get your brain going
Zara was born and raised in a little bungalow in South Minneapolis, MN. Her childhood was colorful and loud and filled with a number of interesting characters which exposed her to different viewpoints, ideas, and cultures early in life and instilled in her a curiosity that continues to drive her passion to learn, explore and experiment. Zara has worked in advertising and for start ups as a designer, illustrator and creative director around the country. With her recent move to Norfolk, VA, she started a new creative studio for herself called Manka which allowed her to focus more on her passion for illustration and design both for her own products and for other brands. Her work mixes digital and traditional media and is influenced by her lifelong love of fairytales and mythology, nature, food and travel.

We want you! We need you! No, we demand your mandatory attendance! Well, it’s not mandatory but we would be glad to see your face. AIGA Hampton Roads is proud to present the Mandatory Membership Meeting.
Each year, AIGA HR holds a small roundtable discussion to get member feedback on local and national AIGA programs, services and initiatives. Roundtables are held on a single overarching topic that AIGA is addressing in a number of ways.
This year we are doing things a bit differently. It is the ultimate mash up. We are combining our traditional roundtable with a social, just for you.
This event caters to new and current members interested in connecting with the membership base. It’s a great opportunity for everyone to grab a refreshment, mingle with your fellow designers, developers, photographers, makers, and more.
Everyone in attendance is eligible for a limited number of prizes and special gifts. Now stop reading this and go signup and follow the mandate.
We demand your presence!! If you are still reading, you’ve called our bluff. Attendance isn't mandatory but we would love to see you there.
This a members only event.
