“I want to challenge you this week, if you are able, to try and look at things in a different way by getting a pencil and paper and trying to draw something, not by looking directly at it, but by looking at the space around it. Try it with something simple like a cup. Instead of looking at the cup and trying to draw its shape, look at the shapes around it. Look at the hole in the handle, rather than the handle itself. What shape do you see? What shape do you see around it? If you want a real challenge, try it with a chair or a vase of flowers.
“It doesn’t matter whether you think of yourself as an artist or not. Just challenge your mind and give it a try! Keep yourself sharp in this time of staying at home! See how you can see things differently!”
