The combined practice of drawing and movement enhances perception and opens up possibilities for drawing by nourishing the connection between vision and our other senses. We come to experience what we see in the context of what we feel, hear and smell, what we can remember, imagine and depict. Practiced together, movement and drawing neither dilute nor buttress one another but rather run in parallel, demanding both rigor and open-mindedness.
This drawing and movement group should allow us to practice different movement modalities, such as the Feldenkrais Method of somatic education, the Alexander Technique, Yoga or Pilates, all the while, or alternately, drawing. In pairs or as a group, we can trade off moving and drawing each other move.
