Join Andrea Kantowitz for a drawing workshop for adults based on her new book Drawing Thought, How Drawing Helps Us Observe, Discover, and Invent.
Drawing as a tool of thought: an investigation of drawing, cognition, and creativity that integrates text and hand-drawn images.
Drawing is a way of constructing ideas and observations as much as it is a means of expressing them. When we are not ready or able to put our thoughts into words, we can sometimes put them down in arrangements of lines and marks. Artists, designers, architects, and others draw to generate, explore, and test perceptions and mental models. In Drawing Thought, artist-educator Andrea Kantrowitz invites readers to use drawing to extend and reflect on their own thought processes. She interweaves illuminating hand-drawn images with text, integrating recent findings in cognitive psychology and neuroscience with accounts of her own artistic and teaching practices.
