Materials for this program

Popular theory on right-side brain activity holds that the right brain is primarily responsible for the intuitive understanding of visual and spatial relationships. Designed to improve the way people see and record objects on paper, a set of visual exercises helps build the ability to draw. If you doubt your artistic ability or were told as a child that you could not draw, this is your opportunity to challenge that perception.

Students begin the course by completing a drawing as a record of initial skill. In subsequent sessions, the instructor guides students through drawing exercises on understanding edges and space, relationships between objects, and light and shadow. This new way of seeing and working becomes second nature with practice and can be used to pursue further development in the arts.
