Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain (Learn to Draw)  

This course is based on the book “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” written by Betty Edwards. It is the most widely used and highly praised drawing instruction book in the world. In it Dr. Betty Edwards has designed exercises to release creative potential and tap into the special abilities of the visual/perceptual right side of the brain.
Drawing On The Right Side of the Brain is a course for people of all levels of skill who want to learn to draw.
• It can teach you to draw even if you feel unsure and even doubt that you could ever learn.
• If you enjoy drawing but have not been able to get much beyond a child-like level, it will show you how to gain the skill you have always wanted.
• If you are already drawing as a professional artist or as an artist-in-training, it will give you greater confidence in your ability and will deepen your artistic perceptions.
You will amaze yourself.
Marilyn Charlotte has been teaching this course for more than eight years at ACE.
