Circles and Arcs workshops
I design events which weave conceptual art process drawing techniques with research on brain function.
These drawing colloborations are grounded in instructions. For example, put your back to the wall, stretch out your left arm with pencil in hand, start at the bottom of the page and draw. The instructions switch back and forth between large general statements to specific, focused propositions. Both sets of instructions allow for and encourage individual creative responses. In this course I take drawing a circle, which is a standard task used to evaluate neurological function, and make it an enabling constraint. We move and draw through repetitions and variations of the circle and stimulate many parts of the neurological system.
