Inspire yourself and get creative. Try automatic drawing with Emmart at Beakerhead!

Automatic drawing is a mark-making technique that encourages spontaneity. You are invited to sit down, close your eyes, and draw for a few minutes without conscious thought. As a meditative process, automatic drawing can help reduce stress and anxiety, evoke emotion, and enhance creativity and memory. In other words: art makes the brain happier!

Emma Bresola (Emmart) is a professional apparel and home decor designer, an illustrator, and a muralist known for her distinctive style of bold yet whimsical hand-painted and digital designs. Find Emmart in the Brain Bazaar by Market Collective at Beakerhead and follow them on Instagram!
