Behind the warm-up stick figure there is also the sentence: "Anyone can draw/visualize". It is about promoting the ability of drawing again and this by creating small graphics.

The participants get post-its and pencils and then have to draw stick figures in different emotions, for example joy, curiosity, grief, stinginess, criticism ... After the previously agreed time, each participant then individually introduces his stick figures to the group. The Post-its are hung on a board or wall, sorted by columns. The participants have fun and realize, even if they haven't drawn for years, that they do have the ability to create small vivid graphics.
