About the workshop
Spontaneous Drawing is different from other forms of drawing. It is not merely about a skill, but the very act of spontaneity. A means to inculcate it into our daily lives - giving the mind room to breathe, to explore uninhibitedly and embolden us to lead an inspired life. It’s focus is on the inner transformation that art produces - more about the journey and less about the destination/drawing.
Using unconventional modalities in drawing, to still the mind, heighten concentration and focus and enable spontaneous expression, this workshop has helped students magically delve into their innate creative abilities, destress and accept imperfection and change with alacrity.
Experiential learning through playful and non-judgemental creativity in all areas of life, including corporate executives and management professionals as also aspiring artists and designers.

The workshop conducted on-site will be of a duration of 2 hours. During these workshops, the participants will be guided to draw in a variety of ways, sometimes taking them outside their comfort zone, challenging their preconceived notions and encouraging them to draw spontaneously. Journaling is an additional quotient of the workshop where participants will be required to note their experience after each day. The session is interactive and participants will share their drawings, during the workshop.
