Drawing on the Right side of the Brain- September 12 to 15, 2023

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, and proved that anyone can learn how to draw.

An intensive combination of lectures, demonstrations, and studio exercises that packs a semester-long art course into five days, this workshop, led by full-time painter/printmaker Lisbeth Firmin, 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.

Students will explore the relationship of drawing to the specialized functions of the right- and left-brain hemispheres, based on the pioneering work of Dr. Betty Edwards. In a carefully sequenced process, they will learn the basic strategies of “seeing” that enable one to draw with a high degree of skill and produce finished drawings of high quality. Through these exercises, people unlock their creative side and begin to ‘see’ in a whole new way.
