Step 1 of collaborative face drawing

The facilitator will give an A4 sheet and a felt pen to each participant in the room. he will ask them to write their name at the bottom of the sheet they have in their hands.

The facilitator will ask the participants to walk in the room in the direction of their choice and stop when he will say “STOP”. At the time of the stop, each participant will meet the other participant closest to him.

They will exchange their papers and each will have to draw the eyes of the other on the paper. When the drawings are finished, each participant will give back the sheet to the other.

The facilitator will ask all participants to walk while waiting for the next stop. The operation is repeated several times by asking to participants to draw: the eyes, ears, chin, hair, facial hair and accessories …

Step 2 of collaborative face drawing

Each participant will present his drawing by recalling his name to all participants. This will indirectly create a link between the participants.
