White sheets, pencils, markers
- The facilitator starts the activity by asking participants to seat in pairs. The pairs can be randomly chosen or defined before.
- The facilitator must share the goal of the activity in order to guide participants in their art work. For example, if the feedback must be general (focusing on general characteristics of the participants) or focused on specific areas (e.g. team work attitude; communication attitude; etc.).
- In pairs, seated and in silence, each participant must start to observe the other participant and draw the caricature or use the reference pictures. Each participant can’t look at the other’s master piece.
- After, each participant must take time to think on the elements that must be highlighted in the caricature they are creating. The art work can be finished with colours or in black and white – to be decided by the facilitator.
- The activity ends with the presentation of the caricatures between the pairs.
- The facilitator must have an active role in the beginning, by introducing the goal and the rules of the activity.
- During the activity, the facilitator may interrupt in case the participants are not following the rules (e.g. be in silence).
- In the end of the activity, the facilitator must resume the activity and give space to any participant that wants to share what they liked most and less, as well as what they learn and are aware after this experience.
- If participants are resistant to draw, even using the reference pictures, the facilitator can provide old magazines, scissors and glue and ask participants to make a collage that characterises their pair.
(use reference pictures to be created by Advancis like the ones available here: http://thehelpfulartteacher.blogspot.com/2013/03/sketchbook-pro-for-ipad-using-ipad-as.html)
