Come and explore this simple yet profound process of "Touch Drawing", in which the fingers and hands take the place of pen or brush. Paper is placed over a piece of Plexiglas to which paint has been applied. Wherever the paper is touched, an imprint is made. Impulses from within take form on paper through the movement of the fingertips on the page. This intuitive, meditative process moves us deeply into ourselves, whether it is our first time or an ongoing practice.
If you have done Touch Drawing and would like to learn about how to turn a drawing into a "finished" piece, this workshop is also for you. We will have a room set up to teach the mounting and developing process. Adhere your Touch Drawing to canvas or watercolor paper and develop it with paint, collage, text, and more.
Bring a few of your favorite touch drawings with you, and let us assist you in this further exploration.
Through Touch Drawing, artists of any level, including absolute beginners, can experience inner authentic imagery coming alive on the page.
Deborah Koff-Chapin, with whom the instructors have studied, developed "Touch Drawing".
