Life Lessons

Life Lessons is a larp for 5–12 participants and a GM/facilitator, written by Mo Holkar. It was designed for Grenselandet 2018. It won the 2018 Golden Cobra Challenge for 'Best Larp Incorporating an Act of Creation'!

Here's the pitch:

“Drawing a live human model can sometimes reveal more about you than it does about the subject. In this larp, you will play a group of students at a weekly life-drawing class, across a series of six lessons. The process of drawing will open up your characters – to themselves, and to each other – and they will share and bond.
It’s important to bear in mind that this larp is not really about drawing: you don’t have to be able to draw, or even to enjoy drawing, to take part. Drawing is just a mechanism for approaching the exploration of your character. What you draw during the larp will not be seen by anyone other than yourself, unless you wish it to.”
