Summary: This book is designed to help the reader gain access to right-brain functions, which affect artistic and creative abilities, by teaching drawing through unusual exercises designed to increase visual skills. It includes updates based on recent research about the brain's plasticity and the emerging significance of right-brain functioning. It offers new tools for identifying and solving life problems with the visual-thinking skills acquired through drawing. It shows how new emphasis on how the ability to use the strengths of the brain's right hemisphere can serve as an antidote to the increasing left-brain emphasis in American life, the worship of all that is linear, analytic, and digital.
