Event Details

Looking for a meditative art form that has benefits for almost any age creator? Consider neurographic art!

According to Alexandra Vergara’s article for the Vancouver Visual Art Foundation: “Neurographic art is a therapeutic art form, which has gained vast popularity ever since Dr. Pavel Piscarev first coined the term in 2014. Neurographica has been scientifically validated and proven, and it is one of the most widely used psychological techniques in art therapy today. Also known as doodling, neurographic art is a technique, which comprises drawing freeform lines or ‘neuro lines.’ These are meant to enable the connection between the conscious and unconscious, gaining access to the inner self by using a specific algorithm or method. It’s an art form that also engages both our aesthetic and emotional intelligence, eliciting positive changes in our reality as it has been observed to create these changes in people experiencing chronic pain and anxiety, as well as helped people gain clarity and peacefulness.”

Learn the process step by step with Cheryl Miehl, Brentsville High School Art Educator and Visual Art Department Chair.  Neurographic art combines color, line, composition, and craftsmanship with the science of psychology and brain research. When utilized within an art therapy context, neurographic art is a simple way to work with the subconscious mind through drawing. This creative method stimulates new neural pathways by combining art and psychology. Discover new ways to create beautiful images through this intriguing art form.
