Story Spheres — the Art of Mindful Sketching

2015-10-18 14.06.59I always loved drawing, but I could never quite believe I would be good at graphic design until my daughter and I went to a workshop in Kingston. Kate from SketchBetter helped us open up our creativity channels via simple exercises, then led us through a guided meditation and then gave us clean sheets of paper with spheres drawn on them. The result of putting our emotions on paper, composing them in a sphere and giving a title to it was astonishing!

On Friday evening, SketchBetter launched with a private view of our inaugural art exhibition, Story Spheres. We’re open at The Art Space above Cass Art in Kingston Upon Thames until Sunday 8 November.
