I have always been more of a 3-D person when it comes to art, but this book has given me a new perspective when it comes to drawing and painting. If I ever teach drawing there are some great ideas to use for students. I think one of the most important things is to be aware of your surroundings and to trust what you see. Chapter 9 really brought up a great way to explain it--getting over the preconcieved ideas. This book really reaffirms to me the importance of teaching art to every student and that everyone can do it successfully.
I have been thinking about our drawing activity and have a couple of images for you guys to look at on Tuesday. I think that we should go for a simpiler drawing--mostly line or shapes--and nothing too complicated. Let me know what you think and I'll take care of the paper and images.
