Drawing from The Right Side of the Brain


For Adults 18 yrs + over

Develop the perceptual skills necessary to see things as they really are. Most of the focus in this class will be on perception and beneficial for all skill levels even beginners who feel like they cannot draw! Drawing increases many of the cognitive functions that researchers typically label as the 'creative' and 'right brained' activities. Research shows through drawing your brain stem can actually get thicker. The idea of the different parts of the brain having specific functions is that when we draw we experience a shift from our usual mode of thinking. Being able to make this shift deliberately and consciously is crucial to learning to draw from observation. With instruction the perceptual skills of drawing can be taught to any beginner and taught in a relatively short space of time so you will be able to render what you see accurately. Exercises in this class will focus on learning how to see and approach:Edges + contours, negative space, proportion, perspective and using a basic unit as measurement, light and shadow and values.
