Our 8th grade artists participated in a neurographic artwork. This process uses a drawing technique that links the conscience with the subconscious. The link is made by activating connections between brain cells and neurons. The result is an awareness and mindfulness that helps turn stress into calm and therefore, is a strategy used in art therapy. After finding a calm space, students think about a problem that is on their minds. Then, the artists draw an intuitive line, scribble, or doodle that reflects their problem for ten seconds. Following the line drawing, students work on rounding out the connections made with the overlapping lines. Lastly, students take their drawing and transform it into an artwork, applying patterns and watercolor.
