Drawing Challenge

If you can, assemble the people you live with or invite a group of friends, colleagues, or family virtually to do the activity together. Otherwise, feel free to do this exercise alone. 

  • Collect enough paper and markers/pencils/pens so that everyone has different drawing implements to choose from. 
  • Each person should think of a topic or subject related to our social distancing experience. It could be concrete ideas, such as home or family; or could be a more abstract idea such as safety, community, recovery, or hope.  
  • One person picks a word from their list and shares it with the group. 
  • Everyone then responds to the word by drawing for 5 mins. It’s important for people to continue to draw, embellish, add new ideas for the whole time.
  • Once the time is up, people can take turns sharing their drawings. 
  • Keep drawing until everyone has had a chance to share a word with the group. Do people have a favorite drawing? 
  • Select one or two drawings to share below, making sure you share the ‘word’ that inspired the drawing as a caption.

I met two friends on Zoom for the drawing challenge.  We did 3 minute drawings (due to kid distractions).  It was really fun to think of words and then draw each one.  I loved seeing each person's style and expression of the word. The three words we picked are: hiding, baking and comfort.
