視覺引導,這兩天

作者: 楊建中 (訓練專員, 財團法人基督教聖道兒少福利基金會)

「我不會畫畫,可以參加嗎?」很多人會在參加前想過這個問題,這個疑問好像也曾飄過我的腦海裡。畫畫好像變成了一種特殊技能,或是特別的人的一種天份。當然,如果真要擺到畫廊,或是藝廊成為收藏品,或許可能會有些門檻。但是,關於「視覺引導」(Visual Facilitation)或「圖像記錄」(Graphic Recording)這件事,我想,這真的是多慮了!

唯一需要的我想是let it be的勇氣吧!

畢竟隨著年紀和社會化的歷程,加上教育的扼殺,畫畫這件事真的離我們太遠,遠到像是我們小時候一興時會歡呼尖叫、手足舞蹈這般自然一樣地遙遠,所以,要撿回來需要一些時間,也需要有人推一把、拉一手的引導。

因為某些原因,我寫下了參與後的心得感想。

我先說說自己,畢竟不同人經歷同一件事會有不同的感受,為了使這篇心得感想可以多一點參考價值,我想簡略地介紹一下我這個人。讀過數學、中文、教育和心理學(主要是研究人類大腦的認知功能)。過去當過老師、引導員、社工、志工。目前從事的工作是教育訓練的領域,對象大部分是非營利組織和機構,偶爾會參與企業的教育訓練。會議引導和體驗教育是我主要的工作方法。對人的興趣遠大於對事的興趣,當然互動過程中發生的事和累積碰撞出的知識,也某部分地吸引我。對於新領域的事物有著好奇和探索的傾向,因此,我參加了這個工作坊。參加的初始學習目的,是想要了解透過圖像、記號如何可以幫助團體進行互動,

或會議進行。比較個人的目的是,如何將腦袋中抽象的感受或思維,轉化成具象的圖像、記號、圖騰。一則比較工作目的導向,希望找到一些新的元素幫助參與團體的成員有不一樣的互動方式,或是可以找到幫助會議進行,以達到凝聚共識、累積想法、找到解決方法、或合理分工和合作的目標。一則比較個人目的導向,由於本人比較屬於發散式思考和跳躍式表達的類型,如果能找到具象的圖像幫助固化想法,相信對於溝通和表達會有一定的幫助。之所以我在參與完3天後,我還能記得這兩個參加目的,真需要歸功於這個工作坊在前置的引導活動和圖像記錄。

「營造學習場境」和「開發學習者潛能」是我覺得這個工作坊最吸引人,和有別於其他工作坊最特別之處,引導提問則次之。

關於「營造學習場境」:學生只要有足夠的支持,學習就會發生。支持當然包含心理的支持和環境的支持,其中環境的支持指的是硬體學習場境,心理的支持則包含了老師,以及團體成員的屬性和互動設計。整個硬體的學習場境,重要的是空間營造,有像是藝廊的空間和光線,加上少許卻很重要的自然陽光。單純的米白色,以及不多的擺設,有枯木和一張舒服的布沙發。然後「有機地」開始自由開展。有機的原因是,所有的產出是參與者隨著時間、互動,漸次長出來的。一張一張的圖像,原本尚未開展的背景白皙的海報紙(像是清明上河圖一樣長的背景海報紙),隨著每個人的分享和揭露,不僅被圖像記錄下來,每個人的創作也像出芽生殖般地長了出來,個別有又整體的進行交流和創作。慢慢地咀嚼著每個人想要表達的想法、感受和意念。

關於「開發學習者潛能」:不僅僅在繪畫上的技巧,能力層面的發展,更重要的是向內的「自我探索」和向外的「個人化表達」層次。有別於以往在工作場域的認識,在圖像中進行自我探索和自我揭露,真實而且深刻。線條可以呈現個人狀態、個人在團體中的位置,表態與不表態之間的拿捏,個體我和群體我的揭露抉擇,都有一個空間和機會被看見或不被看見,我覺得,這樣自由意志的表現,以及學習如何閱讀團隊給了彼此許多學習的機會,或深或淺的

挖掘,或近或遠的接觸,讓人與人之間真實純然的好奇開始有了溫度和顏色。可以問,可以不問;充滿了「作者未必然,讀者未必不然」的詮釋空間。顏色可以認識自己,甚至可以互相對話,在交疊和雜處之間,進行了一場又一場心的對話。彷彿每個人可以透過顏色成為溝通的載具,暢所欲言。故事不斷地被述說和理解,透過一格又一格的繪畫,享受著述說和被理解的感動。

真的很謝謝朝邦基金會不斷地舉辦促進對話的學習性工作坊過程中認識了許多夥伴。

淚聲和笑聲,真實而深刻!

 

These two days of Graphic Facilitation

By Chase Yang (Trainer, Holy Word Children & Youth Foundation)

“I can’t draw, am I able to join?”  Many people might think of this question before participating in a graphic recording workshop, and this question might also have passed through thoughts as well.  It seems that drawing has become a kind of specialized skill or a natural gift of special people.  Of course if you really want to have a show in a gallary, or create an art collection, there’s likely to be a threshold.  But for Visual Facilitation or Graphic Recording I think you needn’t worry about that!

All I think you need is the courage to let it be!

As I grew older, became more socialized and affected by the stifling education system, drawing became something quite far away from me, as far from me today as are my childhood shouts and barefoot playing in nature; so bringing that back will need some time, will need a little push and hand-holding from a facilitator.

Below are my personal feelings following the workshop.

I’ll start by my telling about my own experience, and since everyone experiences an event differently, I’ll tell you a bit about my background as reference.  I studied math, Chinese, education and psychology (mainly researching human brain cognitive functions).  In the past I’ve worked as a teacher, facilitator, social worker, and volunteer.  I currently work in the field of educational training for non-profit organizations and occasionally participate in educational training for enterprises.  Meeting facilitation and experiential education are my main way of working.  I’m interested in people far more than in things, of course in the process of interaction what happens and the cumulative impact of knowledge also attracts me.  I also have a tendency to be curious and want to explore new fields; that’s why I participated in this workshop.  

My initial learning objective for participating in the workshop was to understand how through images and symbols I could help groups go further in their interaction and meetings.  A more personal objective was to learn how to turn abstract feelings and thoughts into specific images, symbols, icons or totems.  On one hand the relatvely work related purpose was a hope to find some new elements to help group participants have a different way of interacting or to help a meeting move forward towards consensus, collective thinking, solutions or a more fair division of labor and cooperation.  On the other hand my personal objective was because of my divergent way of thinking and expressing myself, I wanted to find if I could find figurative images to help solidify an idea, and I belived that this workshop would certainly benefit my communication and self-expression.  So three days after participating in the workhsop, that I can still remember these two objectives is attributed to the pre-workshop facilitation activities and graphic recording.

“Creating a learning context” and “opening a learner’s potential” are what I think make this workshop so attractive, and its guided facilitation questions make it unlike other workshops.

Regarding “Creating a learning context”: As long as students have enough support, learning will happen.  Support includes psychological support and environmental support.  The environmental support includes the hardware of the learning context, while the psychological support includes the instructor and the characteristics of the participant group and interactive design.  The construction of space is an important learning hardware, and in the case of this workshop the art gallary-like venue and natural sunlight was very important.  The simple white walls and furnishings, such as a single tree branch decoration and a sofa, enabled us to “organically” and freely develop.  It was an organic experience because what we produced grew from the participants’ interaction over time, over one page after another of graphics spread across once white poster paper.  Not only was each person’s sharing and reflection recorded in graphics but they also seemed to sprout an individual and collective exchange of creation.  Slowly chewing on whatever thoughts, feelings and ideas each person wanted to express.

Regarding “opening up learner’s potential”: not only in drawing techniques and developing our abilities, but also more importantly in our internal personal exploration and our external self-expression.  Unlike previous workshops I’ve experienced, with graphics the personal exploration and reflection is really much deeper.  A line can express a personal situation, one’s place in a group balanced between self-disclosure or not, the discernment between individual me and group me both have a space and opportunity to be seen.  Such expression of free will, and learning how to read a team gives us each many learning opportunities both deep and subtle in depth or near or far in contact, enabling a genuine curiosity, warmth and color between people.  You can ask questions or not, in the space filled between “the author and the reader”. We can learn about ourselves through colors, we could dialogue and in the overlapping and complex space that we carry out one after another is the heart of dialogue.  Everyone can freely become a vehicle for communication through the use of colors.  Stories will continue to be told and understood, through a lattice grid of paintings we will enjoy the touching experience of being understood.

I am really thankful that the CP Yen Foundation continues to convene progressive dialogue educational workshops through which I can get to know many partners through tears and laughter, it was a really profound experience!

 視覺記錄工作坊 Opens Possibilities


作者: 趙奕姼 (研究員, 中央研究院化學研究所) 

從小美術課就被挪作他用,連畫鐵絲人都無法掌握形狀、線條或比例,這樣的我參加視覺紀錄工作坊,實在是無法想像的事!不過小羊兄不只一次的邀約,讓我覺得緣份到了就隨緣吧。

課程中有一個環節是大家輪番到中間做模特兒讓別人畫,我很訝異地發現,偶而自己也有畫得像、抓得住神韻的時候。第一天的回家作業包括將自己在意的主題畫成Logo,我畫了一個結合水與樹木的極簡圖案來表達”永續議題”,竟然獲得大家的青睞。這些小驚喜,讓我打破對自己的刻版印象,增加了後續自我精進的動力,真是一大收穫。 

在工作坊中Ripley老師完全不在乎每個人原本的底子深厚與否,讓我們專注於觀察、感受與分享彼此在圖像中看到的意念,因此很容易拋開不敢獻醜的心結,放心隨著老師一路探險,並享受Jayce老師在牆面上隨著時間蔓延綻放,安靜人心引人咀嚼的工作坊圖像紀錄。有如在畫廊中上課的經驗真是美好,讓人有不想結束的衝動! 

感謝老師的用心經營與引導、基金會的慧眼獨具舉辦這個工作坊,好多夥伴都有突破自我的感受。這次的經驗讓我體認到,當忘卻羞怯與恐懼,只專注於創作與溝通的意圖時,就會傳遞出奇妙的趣味與意象,改變會場的氛圍與能量,並在會議結束後,讓一群人對他們的產出有更深刻的體認與欣賞。參加這兩天的工作坊,得到有如出門旅遊的快意與充電,謝謝小羊兄帶來的機緣!

  

Graphic Recording Workshop Opens Up Possibilities

By: Ito Chao (Research Fellow, Academia Sinica)

Ever since childhood, I have never been given a chance to attend an art class. I had few experiences to grasp the shape or proportions of an object and the lines I drew were never smooth, so it’s really unbelievable that someone like me would be joining a graphic recording workshop!  But since Andrew Yang kept inviting me to join the workshop, I figured, why not give fate a chance and just go with the flow.

Through the workshop I found a “new” me. During the workshop we did an activity where everyone would sit in a circle and draw someone in the middle posing as a model, I was surprised to discover that occasionally I could draw the model’s resemblance and express the essence of the moment.  Following the first day our homework was to draw a logo representing a topic of our interest, so I drew a very simple image combining water and trees to represent “sustainability” which surprisingly attracted everyone’s attention.  These little surprises helped me to breakthrough my stereotypes and subsequently raise my sense of self-esteem and motivation, which is quite a big take away.

In the workshop our facilitator Ripley welcomed everyone regardless of each person’s starting ability; she encouraged us to focus on observation, feeling and sharing what we saw in each other’s graphics, making it easier to put aside our sense of incompetence. We were relaxed and just followed the teacher’s adventure.  Meanwhile, I enjoyed our Graphic Recorder Jayce’s depiction of our workshop experience unfolding on the wall.  Like a gallery, the workshop was really a beautiful experience that I didn’t want to end! 

My thanks to the facilitators’ considerate management and guidance, to the foundation’s discernment to organize this workshops, and to the many participants who also had their own breakthroughs.  This experience enabled me to recognize when to forget shyness and fear, and instead to focus on one’s intention of communication through creating fun and wonderful images as a way to change a venue’s atmosphere and energy; and following the event as a way to give the group a deeper recognition and appreciation of what they’ve created.  Participating in this two-day workshop I’ve gained the will and rejuvenation of starting a new journey, thank you Andrew for being the harbinger of this opportunity!
