Resource Suggestions for Members of King’s College, Cambridge

Welcome to AccessArt

Our advice to you:

Trust the process. Draw and make, not for the outcome, but for the journey. Don\’t second guess how it feels to undertake an activity – it\’s not until you try the activity, and let yourself relax into the process, that you will know if it\’s for you or not.

If you hear the saboteur voice (you will), acknowledge it but let it go.

Let go of the need to know where you are going, or measure yourselves in terms of where you are. Explore and be open.

Drawing in the Dark

Andrea shares how she started with simple contour drawings and then began focussing on the moving figure, eventually taking her sketchbook to the cinema to draw in the dark, making drawings that were about the process of pure ‘seeing’ and developing a drawing trust between her eye/hand to make marks that recorded her visual experience
