Give Yourself a Minute
to Draw it Out
with Wanda Klenz
You are invited to make a drawing in One Minute...instructions below, in the form of a poem.
Drawing helps you to see, understand, pause, relax, slow down, express yourself, and reflect.
No skill needed beyond your natural drawing ability - imagine you are a child again.
Join our band of artist-workers, healthcare workers, grateful patients, care-home residents, staff and relatives and see if it makes a difference for you.
Please send your drawing by email to and share to your Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #mindrawNHS
Thank you for your participation
A selection of your drawings will be copied and / or coloured in by our team of artists, and shared on our webpage
This is also a thank you to everyone who is doing something, no matter how small, for the NHS and the care sector.
with all our well wishes
Angela Hodgson-Teall, Angie Brew, Jen Wright, Brian Jacobs, Malcolm Quinn
Give yourself One Minute
& Draw it Out with Wanda Klenz
How was your day?
Find a moment
To pause and reflect
Choose something that happened today
To draw for One Minute
Pick up a pencil and paper
Or other drawing tools
Make a mark
Do a quick sketch
Scribble or doodle
To show how you feel
Perhaps add some notes
Or joy in a wiggle
Draw a simple circle like a virus
The rectangle of a bed or oval of a face
You could try closing your eyes
Draw with both hands at the same time
Beware - when you open your eyes
You may laugh
