Left vs Right Brain + Drawing

Betty Edwards wrote a fantastic book that helps people learn to draw with ease. She believes that by switching off our left brain functions we can start seeing in a way that helps our hands to draw what we actually see.

In this interview Betty Edwards explains why teaching drawing this way should be taught in schools. Her first book, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, is now a staple in art classrooms around the world.

Dr. Betty Edwards talks about her newest book, Drawing on the Dominant Eye. This book gives us a holistic view of the eye in all ways that it pertains to art. Betty addresses both left-brain thinkers with science and statistics and right-brain thinkers with drawing exercises and symbolic and anthropological conversations about the eye in history.
