BYO drink and join me for a glass of wine and a unique workshop experience–a combination of art and nonverbal communication.

In this workshop, I combine my unique expertise and experience in universal expressions and art. Learn the fascinating secrets of our core emotions (happiness, anger, fear, surprise, disgust and sadness) and the distinct facial expressions–and microexpressions–which accompany them.
Be prepared to try mimicking the muscle movements of expressions–this usually comes with giggles! Then express your creativity and hone your artistic skills, exploring the universal expressions of emotion through drawing.

You’ll walk away with:
a fresh understanding of emotion
the ability to read true emotion in the people you interact with
a series of experimental drawings

Time
Sessions run for approximately three hours.

Session
Includes a talk about emotion, universal expressions and microexpressions, followed by an experimental drawing session–portraits.

As well as being a lot of fun, experimental drawing reduces drawing inhibitions, making you feel less precious about the drawing itself so that you can relax and enjoy the process. It quickly improves observational skills and drawing automatically improves. It’s a great way to introduce anyone to drawing and a good warm-up activity for artists.
