Public discussion "Drawing is Easy"

"Drawing is Easy" with Jeremie Lederman

On September 25th, I gave a talk at Gangplank HQ in Chandler, Arizona. It was an impromptu talk as the otherwise scheduled speaker was unable to attend.

The topic was "Drawing is Easy / What drawing is and all of the things it is not." The purpose of the discussion was to dispel many of the misconceptions regarding the act of drawing. Drawing is as normal a human activity as anything else we do, however, the cognitive benefits of drawing are invaluable.

Some of the points made during the talk included:
• Drawing is something we are already hardwired to do
• Drawing is not art
• Drawing has no species requirement

• Drawing helps to develop many of the brains cognitive strengths
