Bus Projects and Kari Lee McInneny-McRae invite you to Squiggle Practice . These sessions are for experimental play in the creation of ‘art’. Outcomes of artworks are not as important as the process itself.

These workshops will take place across three sessions exploring the idea of the ‘squiggle’ ~ drawing as ‘play’ ~ which has been inspired by Donald Winnicott’s therapeutic consultations in child psychiatry. D.W Winnicott came up with ‘the squiggle game’ around 1940’s-50’s which was a game that interacted with the idea of using a pen to draw as you felt ~ in particular Winnicott worked with children through drawing as a means of communicating the mind’s personal interior.

These drawing workshops however, are for adults and aim to feed inspiration and fuel a sense of community and connection whilst in isolation.

Specifically, the workshop will be looking at Drawing as an experimental tool for play to prompt creative thinking.

These sessions will be held on Thursday 10, 17, 24 Sepetmber from 6-7pm over Jitsi which is a free open source video conferencing.

To RSVP please email Curator, Public programs Nina Mulhall: nina@busprojects.org.au. Please state in your email which session(s) you want to RSVP to.

  • Session One, Thursday 10 September
  • ‘Something to hold onto’

In this session, there will be a range of simple drawing and thinking exercises to interact with the item you have chosen to bring. This session is all about loosening up our thoughts and learning to play through a process-based practice that is not concerned with skill or outcome.

Please bring the following materials to this session:
5 x pieces of paper or a book to draw in (the paper can be recycled) You will also need some extra pieces of paper for tracing
Some drawing tools (pen, pencil, eraser)
One item in your home that holds a memory for you (the Item or object must be of an appropriate size to hold in one hand).
Some sticky tape or masking tape (if accessible).

  • Session Two, TBC
  • ‘Tracing our shadows’

This session makes use of the shadows in your room. We will be using our own shadows to plan out marks on the page in order to create a fluid and abstract drawing. We will be tracing the gestural squiggles of our own bodies and interacting with the surrounding textures of the room we are inhabiting.

Please bring the following materials to this session:
10 x pieces of paper or a book to draw in,
Grey lead pencils
An eraser
A source of extra light; this could be a torch, a lamp, or a mobile phone light.
Make sure you have a little bit of space around you for some movement.

  • Session Three, TBC
  • ‘Drawing with words and symbols’

This session is all about Mind mapping out our thoughts from the day into art. In this session, we will be using words to create marks on the page alongside symbols. Words will be abstracted to become mere marks on the page. We will be using sgraffito drawing techniques along with some basic stencilling to layer and build up some collage like drawings.

Please bring the following materials to this session:
5 x pieces of paper or a book to draw in.
Grey lead pencils and some coloured pencils
An eraser
Pencil sharpener or stanley knife
Scrap pieces of paper
Tape


  • Outcome

After these three sessions: Participants will have completed experimental and playful drawings which highlight the importance of process play as a source of enjoyment to fuel creative thinking in regards to managing or allowing an outlet for mental health during this time. Feel free to take a picture of your drawing and we will share them on the Bus Projects website after the sessions are over.

These workshops are by donation, we recommend a $5 donation per session. However please pay as you can.

Spaces are limited so please email Nina at nina@busprojects.org.au to RSVP to the workshops. Please state in your email which session(s) you want to RSVP to.
