Materials

    Instructions

    Participants will work in pairs.  Give participants 1 or 2 minutes to study their partner, noticing the details of their hair, clothing, jewelry, features, etc.

    Next, have participants draw their partner from memory, without looking at their partner.  They must draw with their non-dominant hand!

    Background

    This is a lesson in taking in the details of your surroundings, as well as accepting that you don't have to be perfect!

    By drawing with the non-dominant hand, you accept ahead of time that your rendition of your partner will be imperfect.  You are activating different parts of your brain.  You do not have to be perfect to be creative!
