Interdisciplinary Doodles

Part of the intent of the Lineweight exhibit is to explore the ways in which drawing is universal; a means of communicating and a means of thinking that is common to all of us as children and that continues to be an important tool in our “grown-up” pursuits. Therefore the Gallery has been assembling doodles related to research and teaching in fields outside of visual art.

For this collection of doodles we asked Truman faculty to supply us with examples of how they use doodling, sketching, diagramming, and other forms of visualizing to do their research and communicate in class. The samples collected thus far include some from Education, Military Science, Mathematics, and Theatre.

We encourage further submissions of this kind in an effort to build on this interdisciplinary archive of doodles. If you have something to offer please present it on 8 ½ x 11 paper or in a form that allows it to be printed on 8 ½ x 11 paper.

Send digital submissions to Aaron Fine at or mail hard copies to Aaron Fine, Truman State University Art Gallery, 100 E. Normal, Kirksville, MO 63501.
