Drawing Breath: Breathing into Rhythm and Form

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 702

This half-day workshop will focus on the use of breath, and will examine the development of form, shape, and space in drawing and sculpture. Examples of exercises that therapists can use in their practices will be demonstrated. These exercises can help enhance the mind-body connection by using basic shape and space formation in the creation of two-dimensional drawings and three-dimensional sculpture. Psychoanalytic theory will be discussed to embellish our understanding of the development of self through the body. The exercises to be experienced and discussed are used as a route to the integration of the whole person, and as a way to enhance creativity through the inclusion of breathing, hearing, feeling, touching, visualizing, moving, and drawing. No previous art experience or talent is required.
