Table of contents


This class assumes that you already have a basic foundation in Neuroarts.  In this class, I will be teaching you a basic but very effective technique in Neuroarts – Removing Inner Limitations. It allows the user to use paper and ink to capture his/her inner emotional turmoil, and lets the user witness the process of turning that expressed discomfort into beautiful works of abstract art.
The applications of this Neuroarts technique is broad. It can be used in situations like feeling stressed or stressed-out, frustration, vexed, inner conflict, bottled-up-anger, sadness, depress (not recommended for clinical depression), fear of doing something, feeling blocked, anxiety over something (not recommended for clinical anxiety issues) etc. Its therapeutic properties can help alleviate the user’s emotional state. Repeated uses can have bonus therapeutic effects.

The Required Materials for this class are as follows :
1. At least, an A4 or B4 sized thick art paper of about 180gsm or higher (recommended Mixed Media paper of mentioned weight). You may use a larger piece of paper if you wish.
2. Colouring materials Coloured Pencils/Art Markers/Highlighters/Watercolors etc (absolutely no wax crayons)
3. An relatively blunt 2H or HB pencil
4. A medium or bullet point permanent marker blue or black
5. Markers (if you have opted to use markers as you colouring material, then you may leave this out)
6. Notebook / Journal Book / Exercise Book (*Important)

===== Extra reading below about Neurogrphica(TM) =====
What is Neurographica(TM)?
Neurographica(TM) is a process created by the Russian psychologist Dr. Pavel Piskarev in 2014. It is very popular in the Russian and German speaking countries.
It is an art form that does not require any kind of drawing skill; basically if one can pick up a marker/pencil to draw lines in a controlled manner, one can make Neurographic Art (or Neuroart).
The process of making Neuroart can have therapeutic effects, but it is not recommended as a replacement for seeing a therapist (at the time of this writing).
It is like Art Therapy with rules; except it is not recommended as a substitution for seeing a therapist (at the time of this writing).
It has algorithms that a Neurographica(TM) practitioner uses to help their client/s achieve their goal/s.
It can be used as a form of self care to give yourself a few hours to exercise some self love as you engage with the process.
At a higher mastery level (ie. Specialist level and higher), practitioners can modify the technique/s to assimilate/inculcate some Metaphysical and/or spiritual underpinnings, hence creating a new algorithm. New algorithms can also be created by combining established psychological theories.

The Magic is in the “Doing”, not in the final product.

What can Neurographica(TM) do ?
•It can change one’s ingrained thinking patterns, and therefore affect behavioural pattern/s.
•Once the drawing technique is mastered (easily), no supervision is required to use the method again.
•Reduction of stress level/s.
•Purge any personal negative emotions, and negative energy that is in your body.
•Potential to engage dormant brain neurons to increase “computational capacity”, and thus help with arriving at a solution to a difficult problem/issue.
•Help any user to create new neurons and neural pathways in the brain, thus engaging the process of Neuroplasticity of the brain.
•The process is capable of training your concentration, and putting anyone into a meditative state while engaged.
•Art in any form enhances brain functions.
•Gives the user a way of manifesting their own reality on paper.
•Helps the user to anchor their hopes, thoughts, and wishes, during the drawing process; to help manifest them into this reality through the process of Resonance and Law of Attraction.
•Create beautiful works of abstract art, without any formal training in Art.
•Can boost your personal self esteem/confidence.
•For personal and professional growth.
•Works with the user at the subconscious level through drawing.
•Used very effectively in Coaching and Counselling practices.

How does it work?
•Research has revealed that our brain stores memories/information as patterns of neuron activation. (1) (2) (4)
•When you draw familiar metaphors/symbols on paper and then associate them with newly formed meaning/s, the brain mirrors the activity by activating the neurons involved in recognizing the metaphors/symbols. (3) (4) (5) (6) And hence, create and anchor the new meaning manifested into a new pattern of neuronal activation.
•It is widely accepted that learning fine motor activity rewires the brain.
•And it is also a well known fact that when you do more of something, it becomes a habit and becomes easier. This can be explained as the process of Automaticity kicking in, requiring your brain to use fewer resources in doing the same task. (7) (8) (9)
•You put all the above information together and you have the recipe to “make positive changes through strategic drawing.”

NOTE : As with any technique, you have to put in the time to see the results. You reap what you sow. There are no shortcuts to achieving the results that you want.

A quote from the English translated version of a Russian research paper on Neurographica(TM)
“The main conclusion of the literature review and the practical results of its use is that neurographics has the ability to activate the maximum number of points of influence on stress reduction and helps to change the subjective perception of the situation, form new ideas that enable a person to take qualitatively new actions. “
