Draw with Both Hands at the Same Time

June 10, 2012 By Deborah Putnoi Categories: Drawing, Creativity, Education

Get both hands in on the drawing action! Choose two different pencils or pens. Put one in each hand. Then without thinking too much try drawing with both hands at once. What happens? What do you notice? Make some designs. Draw some shapes. Try drawing some different marks. Make a two hand drawing every day for a week and see what happens and changes over the week. Do your drawing look different over the course of the week?

Make Your Mark

Why are so many people afraid to draw? To make a mark on an empty white page? Of placing a line, a dot, a mark on a surface? As someone who draws to survive, draws to think, draws to get lost, draws to feel connected, draws to SEE, I always wonder to myself why do most people feel disconnected to an activity that in many ways is central to who we are as humans? As I have taught well over 2000 people to draw from children to adults I am on a mission to get people to DRAW. To make that first mark and see where their pencil can take follow the journey of your own line.
