This is a quick and fun exercise that demonstrates diversity at a very basic level. It also encourages creativity and helps the delegates to understand a bit more about each other.
Delegates to draw an object suggested by the trainer.
What You Need
- A sheet of A4 paper for each participants
- Pens or pencils for delegates
- A Flipchart or whiteboard
- Blue tack or magnets
- Delegates work individually in this task.
- Ask them to sit with some space between them.
- Distribute A4 sheets to delegates.
- Ask the delegates to draw an object on their paper. Examples include:
- Allocate 3 minutes for drawings.
- Explain to delegates that you will not be answering any questions during this time and participants should work on their own without talking with others.
- At the end of the 3 minutes, collect the drawing and stick them on the flip chart or white board.
Explaining the Test: 5 minutes.
Activity: 5 minutes
Group Feedback: 10 minutes.
Ask the delegates why no two drawings are identical even though the objects suggested are commonly known? Encourage a discussion based on how our values and interpretation of the world around us shape our views. Are the differences in the drawings important in shaping our opinion about others?
