Let go of perfection

Let go of perfection: Creative Exercises to Spark Original Thinking
Let go of perfection: Creative Exercises to Spark Original Thinking

This activity uses erasers, charcoal, paper, and a model or co-worker. In this video, you draw people as they move around the office or drink a cup of coffee. This is done by wiping out charcoal drawings and layering a new ones on top. Being in the moment and responding to a motif gesturally helps us let go of the preciousness of an outcome. When you try so hard to create something with accuracy and perfection, the pressure can kill the outcome.
