Neurographic Chalk Drawing

Students explore Neurographic art. Discuss how mindfulness practices can be used to inspire artworks and how creating art can be therapeutic. Show students examples of these types of drawings discussing the types of lines, use of colour and how these lines create shape.

Students use a black marker and draw lines over their page. Students find the areas where the lines cross over and fill those gaps or round them off. This will make all the lines seem connected and create new shapes in their drawing. Students may want to think of a problem or a worry that they have as they draw their line to try and release that emotion.

Show students how to use water with chalk pastel. Students add colour to their work by using this technique. Students layer over colours and create different tones in their piece. Students may wish to choose colours which represent their feelings.
