About the workshop: It is about seeing, by drawing the bones ie: femur, clavicle, foot, pelvis etc., you connect what you see and translate that into drawing and thereby embodying the bone and it’s relationship with the whole of you. In the act of looking, what do you see and how can you draw it, staying with yourself, using the Alexander Technique principles of Awareness, Inhibition and Direction.
I will be putting hands-on to support each person while drawing. I will start with a ‘lie down’ to set up your perception and awareness, information and location of the bone, drawing it while receiving hands-on direction to head/neck/back, then closing with some movement to integrate with ambient music.
It is meant to give you an experiential means to deeply embody your own bones and your seeing, whether you are an Alexander Technique student, teacher or interested in anatomy, art or mindfulness for your personal process.
I am combining my experiential, anatomy, art and Alexander Technique practices together to create a unique communal afternoon! I hope you’ll join us in the spirit of playfulness and an openness to learning new things about yourself!
