Title: Drawing by the body: a soma-artistic exploration of the relationship between embodied movement and the expressive drawing process.
Synopsis:

Based on a phenomenological framework and the exploration of various somatic theories
(Hanna, 1986; Shusterman, 2012) and practices of embodied knowledge in relation to creativity, the following research investigated the impact of movement on an artist’s self- perceived expression in the creation of drawings. Throughout a series of somatic drawing workshops held in the researcher’s personal art studio, qualitative data concerning primary creative processes was generated by six artist participants and then analyzed according to codes of Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (I.P.A). The researcher had a dual role in the workshops as researcher and participant; the research process is therefore “told” through an auto-ethnographic lens. Data revealed that embodied drawing enhanced the creative and somatic experience of participants, indicating a new dynamic way for practicing and/or teaching artists to approach the drawing process. This research also generated questions of additional interest to be explored in future studies such as: the role of time, tempo, and artistic medium in the embodied drawing process, and the influence of the creative environment on research participants.
