The present project points to the need to rediscover the creative gesture, through an autobiographical narrative methodology, in order to reflect on how the space of the drawing is established, causing inflections and dialogues that enable and collaborate for personal and professional formation. The importance of the study is revealed by the opportunity to produce knowledge from life experiences, placing the student as the protagonist of this educational formation process. It is proposed as a form of research development the analysis of an artist's book about the student's personal formation and the construction of another artist's book during the project, dedicated to professional experiences, corroborating the use of the autobiographical method as a research support.
