“I believe we all come into this world as sensitive beings. When we draw as children, we are prone to be influenced by the opinions of others. We may have wanted to make our parents happy, to satisfy our teachers, or to simply impress our classmates. By doing so, our path to explore each of our own unique artistic language is influenced. As we grow older, we may even begin doubting our ability to express ourselves through the medium of drawing.
Now, as an adult we have the opportunity to revisit and explore those early development stages again. By doing that you will have a new opportunity to recreate the journey and process that you once began but never completed.” Johannes Nielsen
During this workshop you can expect to practice and rediscover the very basics of drawing. Under the guidance of artist Johannes Nielsen you will be using simple drawing materials and techniques that you also later can easily explore on your own at home.
2. We will explore some mindfulness practice while drawing – simply by resting our attention on our body senses as we draw.
3. You will be instructed to imitate the ways we used to draw as a child, with special focus on the early development stages before we began drawing symbols and figures. You will be guided to make those messy, chaotic, uncontrolled drawings which main purpose is to relax and have fun.
4. There will also be opportunities to share our experience and receive feedback if wanted.
