The problem is how to remain

Right-Brain Creativity Workshop, Sofia, August 2012

The day started with excitement and lots of expectations … what’s going to happen … we said our hellos, chose an alter-ego for the day, expressed how we felt on the ‘how am I feeling right now board’. We learn a bit about the functions of the two hemispheres of our precious brain. Then we started experimenting with our right brain functions – we discovered that this long-forgotten hemisphere just can’t wait to come out and play!

We did some brain gym exercises to see if we can harmonise the two hemispheres so they will work in harmony upon our will. Then we  did some ‘Double Doodles’ to see if we can manage to draw with both of your hands at the same time. We realised that using our non-dominant hand can be a challenge! :)

We checked how important speech was for us and we sadly learnt that we can hardly get by without it. Then we drew some more, after our hands, a corner and an elephant, we started to learn how to focus on details without looking at the whole picture – and to our greatest surprise our drawing came out magnificently using the upside-down and slice-by-slice technique.

After even more drawing , brain gym exercises and some singing we wrote a Haiku. Here is one of mine:

my right brain is free

like a  butterfly wonders

around pinkish clouds :)

Finally, we created a special mask for a special occasion: we wanted to express how we see our right and left brain, how we see them differently and also integrated.

 

We had a long day of fun and marvel about how truly creative and skilled we are – way beyond what we had previously thought we were! :)
