Thinking Through Drawing; Drawing without Sight:
Try your hand at “thinking through the drawing process”. How does drawing lead to discovery? What effect does the act of drawing have on the understanding of visual for people with and without vision? In this session we will discover the complex relationship between drawing and thinking.
How often do you look into a mirror? How long since you have gone through every single detail of your face? Let’s take a moment and listen to your heart, experience a journey with engagement and connection to your inner voice and imagination. Close your eyes gently and allow your inner voice to lead your hand, and begin the journey of a sightless self-portrait drawing session.
