  1. 1. Seeing - DrawingArt making as an act of meditation
  2. 2. A non-creative environment is one that constantly bombards us, overloads our switchboard with noise, with agitation and visual stimuli. Once we detachourselves from all these distractions, and find a way of centering, the same environment becomes creative again.SEEING / DRAWING is a way of recovering from the overloaded switchboard. It establishes and island of silence, an oasis of undivided attention.
  3. 3. PROCESS
  4. 4. Step 1 Let your eye fall upon some object.
  5. 5. Step 2 Gaze at this object for one to two minutes without drawing.
  6. 6. Step 3 Close your eyes and imagine a line traversing the nooks and crannies of the object. A single line that is like the path on an ant walking the surface.
  7. 7. Step 4 Open your eyes and begin to draw without ever looking at the paper. Relaxing and constructing a vivid memory of the objects surfaces is the goal of this type of drawing.
  8. 8. Step 5 Look only at the object. Imagine that the tip of the graphite on paper, and the contact of your eye with the contours of the object are one.
  9. 9. Step 6 Go slowly. Make sure your hand doesn’t race ahead of your hand. If your line runs off the page, simply drop the graphite back onto the paper without looking at it.
  10. 10. Seeing Drawing “Don’ts” Don’t look at the paper. Don’t worry what the drawing looks like. Don’t space-out allowing your mind to wander to outside thoughts.
  11. 11. Seeing Drawing “Do’s” Do relax, both in mind & body. Do concentrate on the object as if it’s the only thing in the world. Do slow down both the eye & the hand.
