Cartooning through Perfectionism
Workshop334Matthew Zakreski, The Neurodiversity Collective, United States
OceaniaSat 09:00 - 10:30
Drawing is a very complex and emotional task for many gifted kids. It is something that seems easy to do (if you're good at it) and simultaneously impossible to learn. Regardless of your interest and skill level in drawing, it is far too easy to be overwhelmed by examples of expert-level drawings that increase intimidation and self-doubt. As such, drawing brings up many intense feelings of maladaptive perfectionism and avoidance in gifted kids. This workshop will draw on Dr. Zakreski's skills as a psychologist and a cartoonist to explore how to use drawing cartoons to undo perfectionism.
