GOALS: The body tracing process gives us a window into how outside messages, both positive and negative, become internalized; how we carry those messages in our bodies; how we challenge them and how in understanding them we can see the difference between what we get spoon-fed and our individual truths. Participants receive verbal instructions to purposefully create varying responses rather than fixed outcomes.
MATERIALS: 1 roll of paper 48” x 6’ per person, high quality colored pens, pencils, crayons, YES glue, stamps, glitter, artful punches, calendars, and more all provided.
TIMING: Ideally, 10am-6pm, which includes a lunch break; generally negotiable as long as materials are only transported once.
SPACE: needs to have blank walls that can accommodate paper rolls of each participant, table for art supplies, access to a kitchen for food and a bathroom.
PARTICIPANTS: 6-10 people; wear comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty. Please bring: a willingness to engage the process, favorite magazines to clip from, and a potluck food item.
