Felt Sense into Form Through Touch Drawing with Deborah Koff-Chapin, BFA
This experiential workshop offers an introduction to a simple yet profound process. By moving your fingertips on a sheet of paper that has been placed over a surface of paint, an imprint is transferred to the underside. The experience of drawing with the fingertips allows for deeply natural expression. Multiple drawings are created in quick succession, reflecting the inner transformative process. After the series is complete; you will witness and integrate your full series of drawing through writing and movement. Deborah holds space for your interior journey with drumming, crystal bowls and vocal tones. Group discussion will focus on how Touch Drawing can be applied in a broad range of therapeutic, creative and educational settings.
Information for participants: Please bring an old shirt or smock and a writing journal. To make best use of our time, we will not have a full lunch break. Food trucks with a variety of food choices will be available at the conference during lunch time.
