Learning to Draw • Learn how to see • Process visual information in a special way used by artist • Learn skills to break free from stereotypic expression
Pre-instruction drawings: A recordof your art skills • A Self-Portrait • A Person, Drawn from Memory • My Hand Turn to a fresh page in your sketchbook and spend the next 2-3 minutes drawing a person from memory… I’ll tell you when time’s up!
Why did we do that? • Drawing from memory brings forth memorized set of symbols, practiced over and over during childhood. • Children learn to draw by repetition of symbols • Left untrained adults will continue to produce “childish” drawings right into adulthood.
Your Brain: The Right and Left L –mode e -mode
Your Brain: The Right and Left • The Left hemisphere controls the right side of the body • The Right hemisphere controls the left side of the body
Right Brain Left Brain • Excel in math, music, and chess • Verbal Good with language, use words to describe and define • Analytical Figuring things out step-by-step • Rational Drawing conclusions based on reason and facts • Linear Think in terms of linked ideas, one following another • Logical Drawing conclusions based on logic • Intuitive Figuring things out without a logical order Leaps of insight, often incomplete patterns, feelings, hunches • Divergent Thinking differently, not following the trend • Spatial Seeing where things are in relation to other things and how parts go together • Non-temporal Without a sense of time • Analogical Seeing likeness among things, metaphoric moments when “everything seems to fall into place”
Shifting from L-mode to R-mode • Drawing is largely R-mode • L-mode is prone to be speedy, rush into words, symbols take over
