Art Focus Action

Let’s think about making art and focusing. It doesn’t matter if you are an artist or not. We’re going to use our hand and eyes to create in the air

Find something in your kitchen that you use everyday. I’ve picked a spoon.

Study the spoon, looking at the length of the handle in proportion to curved section of the spoon.

Focus now on the shape. Take your fingers starting at the top of the spoon and move your fingers completely around the edge of the spoon.  Make that movement around the spoon again with your eyes closed.  Now create the movement without the spoon.  Do this in the air. If you want draw the spoon with a pencil or pen.

How to: this exercise will help  you to learn how to focus with your senses; touch and sight.

Results:  Perhaps you felt like you were seeing the spoon differently.  I thought this exercise helped me to intently focus.
