Pippa Pixley, published author and artist has been leading a series of Mindful Drawing Workshops at our Digital Day Centre during June and July. Pippa has produced over 30 books commissioned by publishers, schools, galleries, museums and arts organisations and has been sharing her fantastic artistic talents with our members.
The virtual drawing workshops have been a huge success with the brain injury survivors we support. During the first set of sessions members have been learning how to create a simple illustration of a mouse, hedgehog and bird with great results using only a pencil, teabag and coffee!
” The workshops are a wonderfully mindful process as it teaches us to slow down and observe, to take notice and to wonder. I love to scribble and make gestural marks full of life and movement because there is no right and no wrong – it’s just about expressing yourself freely on the paper” Pippa Pixley.
