Monday, December 19th, Paulina Constancia conducted an expressive arts workshop for 13 young girls from My Refuge House. The participants were asked to do some spontaneous strokes using watercolor on paper without any specific images/details in mind, just to give the subconscious the opportunity to speak up and let itself be known. Afterwhich, participants were made to look at their painting from different angles and try to figure out what it’s about and what it means to them.
Here are the girls working on their Spontaneous Strokes:
Here is a sample output of the workshop.

A Little About My Work
I drew this painting because of my experience before and after MRH. I felt tense while I was drawing this painting because I remembered my struggle, and how I have accomplished things that make me proud of myself. I’m getting nearer to the future.
The output of the Spontaneous Strokes workshop will be on display at the lobby of West Gorordo Hotel. Exhibition details will be posted very soon…
