About this event
For many of us, drawing seems to be a mysterious process, reserved for the few who are “talented,” but the work of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain has debunked this myth. This workshop, an intensive combination of lectures and studio exercises packing a semester-long art course into five days, is designed to develop the perceptual skills necessary for drawing with confidence and has proven valuable both for people who feel they have little talent for drawing and for those wishing to expand their abilities.
It explores the relationship of drawing skills to the specialized functions of the right- and left-brain hemispheres, based on the pioneering work of Dr. Betty Edwards. Neither previous training in art nor manual dexterity is necessary. In a carefully sequenced process, we will learn the basic strategies of “seeing” that will enable us to draw with a high degree of skill and produce finished drawings of high quality (as well as develop new thinking strategies that greatly enhance our general problem-solving capacity).
Note: A $30 materials fee is to be paid directly to the instructor. Please register early; enrollment is limited to 20. All exercises will be preceded by demonstrations and followed by assessments of individual progress.
