workshop for session seven emulated session six, in that the group were
encouraged to make spontaneous painterly marks, for example dots, curves
and lines. This was followed by a period of 'free expression' whereby

In previous sessions the individuals worked on their own, in session
seven, participants were encouraged to work in close physical proximity
to each other, to see if they influenced or assisted each other in their
painting. It was difficult to gauge how influential this was, as the
artists seemed to pay little heed to each other's activities, remaining
focussed on their own work.
