Strengthen Your Thinking - Make Marks to Music - Drawing

Step 3: Making marks to music

  • Play the music (or sounds) from your selection, or from the Start2 tracks listed below and allow your mind to relax. Picture how the sounds might ‘look’. Are they lines, patterns, dots or smudges?
  • As the music or sounds continue, begin to make marks on your paper, reproducing some of what you are visualising in your mind’s eye. If you prefer, you can wind back or replay the music or sounds (if you can) so that you have a chance to capture exactly what you imagined from the start of the music
  • You can fill a page with marks, or just put a few down – there are no rules

  • Remember, if you have a choice of drawing tools, try to choose the right drawing tool for the kind of mark you want to make – such as a thick marker or compressed charcoal for bold marks, or a sharp pencil or fine pen for a delicate effect
  • You could also try this exercise using coloured mark making media – pens, coloured pencils, paints, coloured inks and so on
