We had an amazing day teaching kids of all ages at the FREUD MUSEUM! Having been invited to create an event to run alongside the Museum's 'Play' exhibition, we designed a drawing event to take place across the Freud Museum’s garden, offering a number of tutored drop-in sessions centred around the theme of play, intuition and experimentation. The day offered drawing games workshops to all levels and ages showing that there is no ‘right’ way to draw. Drawing is meditative, process led, and is often referred to as the ‘Thinking Medium’ - by having fun we are more likely to approach drawing uninhibited, opening up to us its therapeutic and stimulating benefits.
The day began with a children’s “Invent a Drawing Game”, adults and other children then played the games imagined by the children during the morning workshop.
We also had great fun playing an old classic- the "exquisite corpse" game, and "draw and pass along", with children and adults working together to unleash their imagination!
Our wonderful photographer Susanna Silva was in residence to document the day, more of her beautiful work can be found here http://cargocollective.com/walpurgis
