  Border & Frame,  2015, Drawing workshop with students included discussion of assumed notions around ‘ frame ’ & ‘ border ’. How might expanded meanings around these words directly affect new methods of drawing in space with objects & body? Empathy for refugees was discussed. Floor movements were developed from these reconsidered word-prompts. In images seen here, participants collaborate & investigate through beginning traditionally on their page of notations, toward the process of drawing with body & objects for a later presentation: choreographic drawing toward drawing out the body through space.
 Exploring drawing together is tremendously exciting. Shared authorship of drawings in dialogue expands ways each person might best use drawing in their life.  The   process of directly drawing ones self out  is inherent to any final drawn result. Drawing is a strategy that investigates and problematizes thought in directly visual forms. These workshops advocate for overlooked tools that are readily available as drawing materials to expand spaces and ways to draw.
