Neurographic Workshop #2 (ONLINE)
  • This event has passed.

Neurographic Art is an uncomplicated way to work with the subconscious mind through drawing. It transforms one’s stress and fear by drawing freeform lines and then later using a specific algorithm to transform the stress into a beautiful work of art. Neurographic Art combines art, art therapy, neuroscience, and psychology.
