Abstract: Whilst embedding drawing within participatory animation practice, I have developed methods of drawing and their links with reception theory. This paper will discuss the methods utilised within the HEART (Hani, M) process and how it connects with reception theory. It will case study people diagnosed with autistic spectrum conditions where the creative process can become a positive element that encourages development. It will review the practice of drawing within animation and propose strategies, whilst the process is constantly evolving - in the context of reception theory - at the time of creativity. I will map the use of drawing as a process that can through traditional and new media be a way of encouraging thought and creative paths that are useful in workshops where the aim is to resolve control where there was an imbalance, repair loss
through bereavement and in a more diverse special groups deal with the autistic spectrum. The main objective is the way these strategies connect and develop with reference to reception theory thereby enabling a set of refined methods to be defined and used. The method corresponds instantly with evolving reception from participants, as an adaptive creative process with aims such as social integration, through drawing within animation.
