Anybody can learn Drawing in 5 Days!!!
I remember in my school days there used to be a guy named Alam Munim. He used to draw so well. All in the class used to see his drawing and enjoy!! Leaving couple more including me, none of other students could ever put down a presentable drawing. Even the toppers were nowhere in this respect even after lot of effort.
This has really been a mystery why some people find it so difficult to draw what they can see right in front of them and others are able to do so quite effortlessly. After some amount of effort those who are unable to come out with satisfactory drawing just give it up for whole of their life finalizing an assumption that they just cant draw.
We experienced similar instances during our long journey of creative education in the last 16 years. Noticed similar blocks that students faced who couldn’t draw. Setting out in research we were lucky enough to come across researches by Psychobiologist Roger W. Sperry’s and Art scholar Betty Edwards.
Most wondrous was the fact that there are two basic modes of thinking – one is Left Brain Mode (verbal, analytic and sequential) and other is Right Brain Mode (visual, perceptual and simultaneous). Howsoever intelligent a person could be with his/her left brain, unless a person switches to Right brain mode he cannot perform many creative activities, Drawing being the prime among those.
This theory gave the short cut exercises to Drawing skills and incidentally also to the creative mode of thinking.
The result is a magical workshop that we deliver to students. Within a short span of 5 days any person starts drawing. Just have a look at before and after drawings of students –
Would have been such a great gift to all my class mates 🙂
