For many of us, drawing seems to be a mysterious process, reserved for the few who are “talented,” but the work of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain has debunked this myth.

An intensive combination of lectures and studio exercises that packs a semester-long art course into five days, this workshop, led by Lynda Greenberg, is designed to develop the perceptual skills necessary for drawing with confidence and has proven valuable both for people who feel they have little talent for drawing, and for those wishing to expand their abilities.

Explore the relationship of drawing to the specialized functions of the right- and left-brain hemispheres, based on the pioneering work of Betty Edwards. In a carefully sequenced process, learn the basic strategies of “seeing” that enable you to draw with a high degree of skill and produce finished drawings of high quality. All exercises are preceded by demonstrations and followed by assessments of individual progress.
