Get ready to unleash your creativity at Neurographic Art, where you’ll dive into the fascinating world of neurographic drawing techniques.

Did you know “doodling” is really good for your brain?

Neurographic art exercises both the logical and creative parts of the brain, and it’s long been used in therapeutic settings as a tool for self-healing and emotional release. In fact, according to the Vancouver Visual Art Foundation, neurographica has been scientifically validated and proven, and it is one of the most widely used psychological techniques in art therapy today.

In this class, you’ll see examples of neurographic art and teaching artists Liz Kitchens and Ann Goodpasture will guide you through creating your works of art. No previous drawing experience is necessary. This is the perfect program for those who say, “I can’t draw!” or “I’m not creative.”

By following a few simple ideas and prompts, you’ll quickly learn your new favorite way to unwind and relax. Those who’s learned this technique often report the process leads to a mindful, meditative yet aware state. Come prepared to explore your creative side (we promise you have one!) and start creating new neural pathways in your brain!

Program note: All program supplies will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own sketch pad or notebook if you prefer.

This program is presented by Liz Kitchens and Ann Goodpasture and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
